After the meeting…

We just had our weekly meeting Tuesday evening and I must say it was a lively bunch. There were 3, count them… 3 new and not-so-new folks at the meeting. One gentleman, Harold Moore, was one of our  founding members back in the early 90’s. Also, Nichole and Vic joined our merry band of wood chippers.

While I worked with our new carvers on a boot and some wood carving basics, others did the usual things: wood burning, caricature carving, animal carving, ( not real animals, mind you- for all the PETA fans).

Marvin brought  another of his magnificent Hibiscus flowers similar to the one above.  He never ceases to amaze people with the realism he brings to his sculptures.

As is normal for our group we also engaged in a fair amount of “pre-carving.” Pre-carving for the uninformed is when one brings all of their tools to a meeting and doesn’t pick them up, but sits around and talks about starting carving all night.

Our website for the local carving cub, the Aiken Wood Carvers Club is We’d love for you to stop by for a visit.

Until next time. Jack

Just completed wesite update…

Well it is Sunday afternoon and I have just completed an update of our carving website. I’ve added a couple of pages and a weather widget. Now you don’t have to look outside to see what the weather is… just look on your friendly Aiken Wood Carvers Club and there you are!

Bill Brown is the Featured carver with some nice carving pictures. We’ve added a sponsors page which is still very much a work in progress and a links page where you can find  many good places to go get info at you finger tips.

Forgive me for the spell check… haven’t run it yet. We will get into some philosophical stuff at a later date. Go by and take a look.

bye for now,
