Mike HuberMike Huber; I live in Milwaukee with my wife and our four kids, an exchange student from Japan, two regular cats and four foster cats. I've been carving for about the last five (hard to tell exactly when I started) of my 38 years. I write manuals and help files for software to pay for the luxury of carving without worrying about selling.

My wife Diane, of 35 years, and me reside at Point Peninsula on Lake Ontario, NY; 14 miles from the Canadien border. Full time birdcarver, songbirds and shorebirds. Business card reads, "Songs in Wood." find someone that cares as much about birdcarving as I, so this process can be carried beyond me.

CRaig WatsonCraig Watson; I am a 58 year old (married 40 years) father of two who have made me a grand father of four in the last 16 years. Married to a wetback Norweigian who does Rosemalling professionally (that means she gets big bucks for her work) She also does NOT like lutefisk. I have been carving about four years and my interest varies from chainsaw carving to minatures. I like to carve mamals and other things that come from my very own halucinations. My most favorite carving is a wolfalope I saw and cut down in the far north of Island Park, Minn. Check my web page for some of the painting and carving done by the two of us.

Marcie MooreHi, I'm Marcie Moore. I live in Northern Illinois with my 2 silver persians. I have a son and daughter whom are now grown and live on their own. Ever since I can remember I've always loved art in some form... from knitting to doll making, decorative painting to quilting there hasn't been much I haven't tried. Wood carving had intrigued me for a long time... then one cold, lonely evening in January '99 I found my way (via the internet) to the Wood Carver's Porch!! I was welcomed with open arms, helpful advice, and a barrage of "blonde jokes"! LOL!! I was fortunate enough to live close to porch member Joe Dillett, so on 3 consecutive Mondays in February I took my first classes. I have since taken classes with Harley Refsal, Becky Lusk, Alf Stronen, and hope to take many more. "The Porch" is now my home away from home and... *I* survived the GPO 1999!!!! )
