A New Website for the St. Lawrence Wood Carvers

Stan Adams has developed a new website for the St. Lawrence Wood Carvers where you can view the many activities going on in their club.  Check out their website at www.stlawrencewoodcarvers.com as well as follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  Better yet, drop in to visit the club members any Monday evening starting at 7pm at 9 Church St. Brockville.

Help Us Identify These Carvings

This carving of a partridge was purchased in the late 1970’s from Beckett Galleries in Hamilton.  Attached is a photo of the carving created by W. Walton.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any information that you can share on this carving or the carvings of W. Walton.

A Timeless Tip

John Poole submits this gentle reminder that our hands and fingers are to be treasured if we expect to enjoy our hobby for years to come.    A kevlar glove and friction tape to protect fingers from a glancing pass of a knife or chisel are essential accessories to carving.
