A Sold Out Success

From Trees to Treasures Woodcarving show, sponsored by the Columbus Chippers Woodcarving Club, was a tremendous success today. Over 30 exhibitors showed their wares. In addition numerous Cub Scouts were exposed to knife safety and carving techniques. In addition to the pictures below, go to the Columbus Chippers Woodcarving Club Facebook page. Joseph Poindexter has posted many more excellent shots of the day's activities.

  1. Great show! It's amazing what you guys can do with wood. There was one table that had stone carvings though, and while I remember the name (Columbus Chiselers), I can't find any information about that on the web. Would you, by any chance, know anything about them, or how I could contact them?
