ARTISTRY IN WOOD SHOW is November 12 and 13. Over two hundred carvers and woodworkers will be displaying and selling their creations. Carvings will be entered in competition to reveal some of the best carvings for this year. Plenty of tool and wood vendors will be available for any carver’s needs. The WOOD BEE CARVER will be located in booth # 1022 so come by and say “HOWDY.” If not this year then plan on next year as this show should be on anybody’s “bucket list.” The Santa holding the “30th Year Artistry in Wood” sign will be the tree topper on a tree loaded with carved ornaments. The tree is one of the raffle prizes.
The first annual Buckeye Woodcarving Round Up is now history. July 27-30, 2011 were the dates of four days of woodcarving classes held at the Poor Farmer’s RV Camp near Fletcher, Ohio. Over 100 registered carvers circulated among a dozen classes and purchased supplies from three vendors. The random photographs that follow taken by photographer Don Stephenson show scenes from some of the class sessions in the main assembly hall. Lunch and evening meals were available followed by mini classes for three evenings. Students came from Canada, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. The cost was a twenty dollar registration fee and an amount for the carving project as students could chose which class or classes to attend each day. All seemed to agree that this was a fun event and look forward to next year’s Round Up – - July 25-28, 2012.
