What do you do with a block of wood, a sharp knife or chisel, and a desire to create something? Have you ever tried carving something out of wood? Thinking about what you want to carve, how you want to carve the wood, and then how to finish it into a successful piece—it is challenging, thought-provoking, relaxing, and fun! Who could ask for more?

You are so lucky to be living in SaddleBrooke. We have a good Woodcarving Club that meets in the Turquoise Room every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Our club has basic carving projects to learn to use knives and chisels. We have an assortment of woods to carve and tools to use. We also have a large library of books and magazines to use to get ideas from. Many of our books have ideas and tips about how to carve everything from animals, caricatures, spoons, and spatulas, to toys and Christmas ornaments. And the books are free to borrow and use.

So, how do you get started with your ideas and projects? Come to the Turquoise Room on Tuesday morning to meet our members and see some of their projects. We will be happy to have you join us and start a project as the first step to being a true woodcarver!

So, let the wood chips fly! For more information, email us at [email protected].
