By The Woods Woodcarving Supply
Organized by: William Hanes
The senior population of a 4 county area of north Texas is made up of a large number of men and women who use wood carving as an outlet for their creative energies. To obtain supplies they have two major suppliers and these require a 50 to 80 mile round trip. I want to be able to meet their needs by having the supplies closer to where they live, and be able to supply them at a lower cost as I don't have the large overhead of the large retail stores. These people are mostly on fixed incomes. It is my intent to, whenever they have trouble with transportation, deliver the supplies to them. I also want to teach wood carving to the young people in the area through classes held in the local library/community center. I am one of these seniors but, thank God, have been blessed with fairly good health, some of my fellow senior woodcarvers are not so blessed.
