Who We Are

The Tannehill Woodcarvers Club was chartered in 1985 for the purpose of promoting the art of wood carving, to acquaint the general public with sculpturing in wood and to bring back and preserve the almost lost art of woodcarving. Tannehill Woodcarvers meets at the Tannehill State Park in the Cane Creek School on the 2nd Saturday of each month.


We have about 80 members, with about 30 attending on a typical Club meeting day. We are just a group of men and women that love to carve and have a good time of fellowship with one another. Club day will usually start about 8:00 am and go to 2:00 or 3:00 pm. So, bring a sandwich and a positive attitude that you want to carve or learn to carve.


Please come and visit us. If you decide you want to join as a member, dues are only $20 a year.

Some Details

We'll Get You Started

Well, you say "I don't know how to carve", we will teach you how. If you have a desire and will - you are teachable! Or if you carve and just want to get better - we can help you. We have carvers that can carve a variety of different things.

Traditional Techniques

Whether you love carving details into a block of wood or making a wooden sculpture, we would love to get to know you.

Modern Power Carving

You'll find several power carvers and people who use both traditional tools as-well-as a power carver for different effects. Novice or expert, we'd love to have you join us.
