We are a club dedicated to furthering the art of wood carving. To this end we meet monthly to enjoy the fellowship of like minded artists and craftsmen and to learn from each other how to improve our woodcarving skills. We welcome wood carvers of all skill levels. Even if you have never put a knife to wood, just bring the desire to learn.
