Joe Srholez, left, and Rocky Mountain Carvers owner Joe Wenal, right, participate in the quick carve portion of the Carve Wars competition in Rifle on Friday. During the quick carve the carvers take a break from what they are working on and start on an entirely new piece from scratch and finish it within an hour. Pieces from the quick carve were eventually sold in the auction that took place at the end of the competition. Each of the four carvers completed a design for the whole competition as well as for the quick carve, a minimum of 12 pieces weree up for sale at Saturday's auction.
