The Colorado Springs Shrine Club hosted its 35th annual woodcarving and woodworking show, sale, and competition Sunday.
The Shrine Club members have some sharp skills. Some were just displaying their art, and others wanted to sell it.
Either way, woodcarver Jon Nelson said, there’s something special about working with wood.
“It’s something unlike other mediums,” Nelson said. “Throwing pots and that sort of thing, you’ve got a lot of clean up before you can go to dinner. With wood carving, you set it aside and it’s exactly the same when you come back to it as it was when you left. Your paint doesn’t dry out. Nobody carves it while you’re gone.”
