Wood Carving Demo with Craftsman Steve Ramsey
March 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As part of our ongoing celebration of National Craft Month we’re welcoming local wood artist Steve Ramsey of Carve Diem. He’ll be here from 1-3, demonstrating his carving skills.
Steve Ramsey has always been a hands-on DIY guy who likes the feeling of accomplishment achieved from doing a great job with his own hands. So it’s not surprising that, after seeing a carved primitive in an antique store, he thought, “Hey, I can do that!” and did. He taught himself to carve small pieces, which evolved into bigger, more complicated ones, and now he uses a lathe as well as his hand tools. He likes to use locally-sourced woods, and he grooves on people loving the perfectionism he pours into each piece. In addition to beautiful rustic bowls and spoons, Steve makes holiday ornaments, live-edge tables, repairs beloved family pieces and even takes special requests.
