For the last several years I have been a part of the Sauder Village Woodcarving Show in NW Ohio and have meet many woodcarvers, all of which would do anything for one another. This past month one of those carvers, Paul Nofziger, pasted away. Paul was a very giving man and donated some of his time to help with the Black Swamp Benefit which helps people with disabilities. Lisa who worked with Paul on all the details for the benefit and was devastated and called me to see if I would carve something to honor him and to be auctioned off at the benefit. My answer was sure I will. Paul loved the phrase The Woodcarvers Gift so I carved this plaque out of a piece of 5/4 basswood and with a little thought I came up with the hands.
