On February 1, 1995, a group of 18 carvers gathered in the basement of a fellow woodcarver. It was decided we could do it. Officers, by-laws, insurance, dues, incorporation and a meeting place were all discussed and decided upon. The Wisconsin River Woodcarvers, Inc. was created.

On March 31, 2001, we had our very first woodcarving show and we have had one every year since.

After many years of meeting in a local high school, we decided to meet year-round and not just during the school year. We now meet at a variety of times and locations, as follows:
  • at Church of the Intercession, 1417 Church Street, Stevens Point, WI, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 9:00am - 12:00pm.
  • at The Lincoln Center, 1519 Water Street, on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, from 6pm - 9pm.
  • at the First Congregational Church, Wisconsin Rapids, WI, on Wednesdays from 6pm - 9pm. The second Wednesday of every month is the monthly business meeting starting about 7pm. (There is still open carving).

Every year we bring in 2 or 3 nationally-known instructors to provide classes, or our own carvers teach club projects.

A Summer picnic and Winter Christmas party are yearly events.

Our club continues to grow, and has 99 members as of Spring 2015. Five charter members remain in our club: Sophie Kubisiak, John Pastori, Bob Rude, Diane Swiggum, and Greg Wirtz.

Our Motto....

"Keep the Chips Flying"
