I don't know if Bomber Industries SES is the biggest or oldest or whatever-est carving gathering worldwide, but it undoubtedly is a top shelf event. It attracts a critical mass of really cool and talented carving personalities, and it's held in the world class resorts of Aspen, Colorado. My video posts may get lost in the SES discussion threads, so starting a thread here to focus on SES videos. If you're on the fence about spending the money to attend SES, watch theses videos to help make up your mind.
It's a video playlist, so it rolls from one to the next, and there's a control in the viewer to browse through them, or follow the link below.
