Charlotte Woodcarvers Club had another successful year with members contributing their time, talent and efforts on a variety of activities throughout the year to promote the art of woodcarving. Thanks to each of you who have contributed so much.

Merry Christmas Everyone


Another year has allowed our club to come together for fellowship and fun at our annual Christmas Social.
Thanks everyone for making Charlotte Woodcarvers Club a successful, enjoyable and fun filled club.
We had great participation at this year’s Christmas Social with 73 in attendance and the covered dishes were out of this world. Once again the club provided the fried chicken and desert and everyone brought a covered dish to share with others.

Merry Christmas Everyone and thanks for a great year of carving and fellowship.

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen with this piece of wood

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone


Every September and October brings us carving shows and festivals that we, as a club, try to attend by supporting local woodcarving clubs and festivals. I would like to thank all CWC members supporting these shows in Hickory NC, Greenville SC, Townsend TN, Asheville NC, Wilmington Ohio and a Festival in Waxhaw NC and Matthews NC.

When September arrives each year, my wife and I are invited to spend a week with my sister and her husband at their beach condo in North Myrtle Beach. I think I could spend even more time at this particular condo. UM!!! A beach condo!!! This is the perfect location to carve and enjoy good snacks and maybe a favorite beverage. But hey, it’s the beach….. Enough said for now.
September also allowed us to once again participate with the Matthews Alive Festival for 3 days of carving and interacting with over 2000 visitors. Once again the club gave over 200 hours of support to the festival which was a tremendous success. A big thank you goes out to Bob Benston for heading up this event and would also like to thank all members that gave their time to help the club for a successful festival.

With temperatures well above 950 in Charlotte, some of us gathered our carving tools and wine and once again headed off to Wild Acres Retreat located in the North Carolina Mountains for some cooler weather carving classes.
When we arrived on Monday morning the weather wasn’t much different than where we left, HOT!!!
We were all meeting for lunch at a pre determined location when we were notified that this place we were eating Ran Out of Food. WOW!!! So with the fast acting response of our leader, Rod Gatlin, we found ourselves with PIZZA being brought to our carving studio. Got an early start on carving and had pizza in the studio. Can’t beat that!!! We did have cooler weather for the rest of the week but speaking for me; I wore shorts and t-shirt all week and had the fan going. Can you believe that?
