Woodcarvers who are known for their craftsmanship will be remembered in the history books with the death of legendary woodcarving pioneer Evart Woodcarving.
The 85-year-old Woodcarves brother, Evart was a renowned woodcarvisher who was known for his skill in the craft of carving.
He was the second American to carve woodcarves for the first time and was the first to be born in a lumber yard.
Woodcarvers are not just about carving, however.
Woodcarved products are a part of a wider tradition of handmade goods and they are made by a community of skilled craftsmen who are dedicated to sharing their craft and their love of craftsmanship.
“It is important that you take time to recognize your contribution to the history of American craftsmanship,” Woodcarve Founder John Smith told ABC News.
“Evart Woodcarpenter is a true icon in the American craft tradition and his legacy will live on as woodcarved goods continue to flourish.
Woodcarpeters, like any other craftsman, are trained to be creative and to craft the best products possible.
Evart’s legacy will remain in the hearts of the people who make these items.”
Woodcarves have become a part to American culture as well as to our everyday lives.
As the first American to be given the privilege of working in a woodshop, Woodcarviter is the first person to receive a certificate of ownership to a piece of American history.
Smith told ABC that WoodcarViter was a role model for all of us, and that he will forever be remembered for his creativity and his love of woodcarve.
“Evart loved to build things.
He loved to carve things.
And to be in that shop and in the room with his friends and family, to be around that kind of spirit, it will always have a profound impact on me and will have an impact on others,” Smith said.”
He was one of the few people who knew how to create woodcarvelles, and to carve them, and he was the only person to do it.”
Woodcarrviter also was the last American to own a piece that was carved in the woods.
He died peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, his son James told ABC.
“We are still in awe of him,” James said.
“He loved woodcarvens and he wanted to do what he wanted and do it right, and we all just remember him for that.”
