This is my first newsletter as the new President of the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bob Warner and all of the club members that have served on the Board of Directors, and all the other various volunteers that have worked so tirelessly to make this club what it is today. I would also like to recognize Bob Benston and his Show Committee for their extraordinary efforts to secure a new venue for our 2019 Woodcarver Show. Some of you may not know that the Marion Diehl Center will not be available to us for at least 2 years due to construction and may not even be available after that. I am confident that Bob and his group will be able to find a suitable facility soon.
April continues to be a busy month for the club with carving classes for the new members finishing up and the chip carving class instructed by Paul DesRosiers beginning. Rod Gatlin instructed a beginner’s class on carving faces and intends to hold a more advanced class soon. Thanks to all who stepped up so that we are able to help club members improve their woodcarving skills. Also in April club members have signed up to demonstrate wood carving at the Reid House in Matthews, NC.
Vice President Tom Kavanagh will be the go to person to coordinate and schedule any classes offered by the club. If you have any ideas for classes that you would like to see offered, please contact Tom.
Unleash your creativity. I would like to challenge each member to try something new in the art of woodcarving. If you haven’t tried carving caricatures or chip carving or birds or pyrography, get out of your comfort zone. You never know what you can do unless you try.
If you think you can or if you think you can’t….you’re right
Henry Ford
Happy Carving!
Al Wheeler
President
