Kleven Carving -- from page 1 "'You have to do it for the fun of it, because you could- n't make money at it with the amount of time it takes." said Kleven. About the only way to make money at it is to write a book. We don't take it to seri- ous -- sometimes we do relief carving, then next time it might be a character piece. Les and Arvid prefer doing relief work while Konrad and Alvin prefer to carve characters. They probably do as much kabitzing as they do carving. Alvin said. most people can learn to carve, it just takes time. Although these carvers use an array of tools they say all you really need is a good pocket knife. Conrad said one of his favorite projects was carv- ing an airplane, it was a real challenge. When Arvid ,started carving he said he couldn't draw a stick man. Alvin said, "I like carv- ing just about anything as long as we have lunch!" Sometimes we use a pat- tern, and other times we just carve from our imagi- nation. They do sometimes use power tools but generally they only use a band saw to cut out the outline of the piece they are carving. This day the group cele- brated Les Hoyt's 85th birthday with cake and ice cream for lunch. This wooden farmer awaits some finishing touches including a few farm tools. The carved cowboy boot was one of the first things all of the carvers started out with.
