afternoon comes along and most people get ready for the weekend by knocking off a little early or they talk about what they are going to do for the weekend Nothing out of the ordinary there Coworkcrs friends and relatives usually talk about these things as the Friday finish at five approaches But if you like to carve wood like the New Braunfels Wood Carvers do on Friday afternoon at the Senior Center then the weekend might not be the big deal most people play it up to be About 15 men and women diligently carve wood into lively little wonders suqh as snowmen Santa Clauses and even detailed Native Ameri can likenesses During a two hour period the conversation ranged from high school football to Simpson to how being left handed can be detrimental to a career The weekend oddly enough did not come up Its is a social club really more than any said wood carvsr Bob Van Zandt None of us do this full time and no one here is trying to break any The group doesnt listen to any records cither Conversation and the sound of knives shaping and molding wood mix in the air of the little room the group occupies The hands of the carver use knives to create and make things A plain block of wood is trans formed into a figure like a or a slender curvy long rose You have to visualize a said Ken Tre xona 1 cant remember who said this but they said you never make mistakes while you arc woodcarving you just redirect your Most of the carvers use Bass wood for their handy work Its fairly soft and easier to carve than most other woods It docs not splinter easy cither Working with harder wood can strain the mus cles in the hands and make what could a be a short project a long one Another mark of the trade arc the cuts on the carvers hands Each carver has a story behind each scar on their hands There arc a lot of scars around here if you take a look around said George Translation a lot of scars a lot of stories its just good said Arion Mcckcl You have to say Meckcl should know hes been going to Carvl ing meetings since the late seventies He actually helped form the New Braunfels Wood Carvers over a decade ago When 1 first started doing this 1 didnt think 1 had thr patience to do this but that was 15 years he said Having the resolve to learn an artistic skill can take time but finding out how to carve out friendships among fellow man can take just as long This group should do great For
