Maine Woodsman Day at the Maine Wildlife Park
Gray, ME 04039
Join Maine Custom Wood Sculpture Bill Fournier as he uses a chain saw to create eagles, bears and more. Watch a block of wood become a work of art. Finished pieces will be for sale. The Streaked Mountain Wood Carvers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching, preserving and promoting the art of woodcarving, will also be on hand to display a variety of wildlife carving methods, and there will be hands-on SOAP CARVING for the kids! Nate Gould, Assistant Superintendent at the Park, will demonstrate using a chainsaw to carve a wooden chain with moveable links and accessories out of a solid beam, or ‘cant’. Bring your cameras & your earplugs for these great demonstrations of different wood carving methods!
Event is from 11:00am-2:00pm.
