Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Hamilton Wood Show 2017

I attended the Hamilton show this past weekend with my chalice box and, once again, I had a chance to spend the day and evenings with Emily.

This is a big and well organized show staged at the Canadian Warplane Museum hangar adjacent to the Hamilton airport.  Although wood carving is a big part of the show, I suspect the majority of the people come to the show to take in the many vendors selling and demonstrating wood working equipment.  And there are a lot.

Of course, besides enjoying the wood working and wood carving, the aviation museum is also open and visitors can mill around these restored and airworthy aircraft.

The chalice box took a first place in the relief carving category and there were many beautiful carvings in all categories.  I thought that the best of show this year was just spectacular.  Carved by John Mills, this was a carving inspired by a hood ornament of a 30’s or 40’s era cadillac.  It was very well done.
