Every time I go home to Maryland, Dad takes me to his woodcarving workshop where he is busy creating relief carvings of many different themes. Lots of his woodblocks depict farm work, or animals, and some are nautical. His little "get a way" includes his bench, tools carefully hung in their place, an airplane model flying above his head, and a display of his current and past work. Even though I don't carve, I love to see and feel the wood, and it inspires me to do my own projects, whether it be weaving or drawing or spinning. Here are a few photos from "Grandpa's Shop".
