South Dakota Woodcarvers, Inc. is a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of South Dakota for the purpose of preserving and expanding the fine art of woodcarving.
While its origins and membership are primarily located in the area of Sioux Falls, SD, all woodcarving organizations and individual carvers within the state are welcome to make contributions to this web site and and share its benefits.
All the way from Ellswsorth, Minnesota, Ron White joined our club in 2013 and frequently shows up at our Third Saturday Meetings at the Center for Active Generations. As those of us present at yesterday's meeting were busy carving faces into old wooden spools saved in times gone by frugal seamstresses, who did not believe in throwing good spools away after the thread was gone, Ron came in with a couple of marvelous bird houses he made to look like old churches. Ron is an expert carver of loons and large-scale wild life sculptures, but building birdhouses from pieces of scrap wood gives him undeniable pleasure.
