Holbert offers advice on making faces during carving seminar

February 21, 2012

Photo by Amy Cherry - Pat Holbert of Dalton, Ohio spoke to carvers and interested visitors about making faces out of wood during the first day of seminars at the Ridgway Chainsaw Rendezvous held Monday morning at the American Legion club.

Each year organizers of the Ridgway Chainsaw Rendezvous offer morning seminars to both carvers and anyone interested in attending and learning more about the intricacies of the industry.
Seminar speakers offer a vast array of advice, tips and tricks. Many also welcome comments from fellow carvers as to what their experience has been regarding the specific topic at hand.
The first seminar on Monday featured Brad Bemis of North Brookfield, Mass., who spoke on "All About Wood," followed by Pat Holbert of Dalton, Ohio, who demonstrated how to make human faces.
Holbert, a former American history teacher, has attended every Rendezvous. He said he knew at age six that he wanted to work with wood.
He added that what has impressed him about attending the Rendezvous is carvers helping other carvers.
