    • As Medway chainsaw artist Jesse Green, 38, finishes up a statue of a soldier clutching a firearm at Natick AMVETS Post 79 on Friday, his proud father, Jay, was front and center in the small crowd that formed to watch the memorial intricately carved from the remains of a tree take shape. Jay Green says he can’t take any credit for his son’s talent. “I did buy him his first chainsaw when he was 3.” He said but quickly added that it was a plastic toy. Jesse Green’s talent for chainsaw art manifested itself over 15 years ago when, as a UMass art student searching for a class project, he spotted a log by the side of the road and decided to make something of it. The resulting tiki was the first in a long line of celebrated art works.
