David B. Johnson Wins Best-in-Show

David B. Johnson Wins Best-in-Show

The Canadian Woodcarving Championships have been held annually since 2001 in Hamilton, Ontario. This competition is growing in leaps and bounds with the objective to ultimately replace the former Canadian Championships held in Toronto until 1987. In January 2004, the competition saw close to 500 carvings in its four levels: Novice, Intermediate, Open and Masters.
The Masters competition consists of Division 1 (General) and Division 2 (Wildfowl). This year, a long-time WNAG member, David B. Johnson, carved the Division 1 Best-in-Show against tough competition including Fred Zavodil, Joe Dampf and Ron Pearce. David's carving, entitled "Victory?", is made of black walnut and stands approximately 30 inches tall."
