Carving that day will be Will Bondurant, of Berea, Ron McWhorter, of Richmond, and John Ferguson, of Berea. Bondurant specializes in spoon carvings with a Celtic theme, while Ferguson enjoys carving a variety of animals and characters. McWhorter carves directly from split logs using turn-of-the- century tools to create oval dough bowls.
