Hello carving friends -
The CCA National Caricature Carving Competition always produces a number of great carvings, and the 2011 Competition was no exception. You can see more photos of Ryan Olsen’s Best of Show winner and lots more in the gallery in this issue of WOM.
Big changes are in the works for Woodcarver Online Magazine and the Carvers’ Companion web sites. Suggestions for additions and changes are always welcome. More information in the months ahead.
If you are a Facebook member, take time to visit the Carvers’ Companion/Woodcarver List Facebook group page. This provides a place on FB for carvers to post carving photos and to chat about carving; it also serves as a companion to the Woodcarver Listserv. Come on by for a visit!
