I joined SCWC in 2004. My wife Jeanie and I are from Nitro WV. We spend about eight months of the year in Melbourne Florida and four months in WV. We have four children and eleven grandchildren. I'm a former member of Ashland Area Woodcarvers in Ashland Kentucky where I worked at Ashland Oil Refinery as a piping designer.
I started carving on my lunch time at work, carving peach seed monkey's. Then I went to some relief carving and then to walking sticks, which I think is my speciality.
I enjoy the camaraderie with my fellow woodcarvers at SCWC and appreciate the helpful hints and new idea's we can bounce off one another.
I also like to help new carvers with some of the basics of woodcarving and watch them advance. We always welcome new carvers to join in on the fun.
Below are some of my carvings.
