The Capital Area Carvers and the Badger Wood Turners have a show annually. This year it is located at the Abundant Life Christian School in Madison. I am working on two carving projects. The first is a blue heron made from wood harvested near the lake by Hudson Park. This ash tree was knocked down in a storm and was harvested and sawn into planks at the Urban Wood Fest on Atwood Avenue. I took a look around at the mound and the location and remembered seeing a blue heron on the lake edge. So this this is as far as I have gotten. I am working on the painting scheme.
The second is a Santa – this as an unfinished block of basswood and I was told it was intended to be a Santa coming down the chimney. This is what resulted. Along with other club members carvings, this will be for sale at the show.
