Dave Pike, Craig Parks and Recreation director, said the finished works from this year’s Whittle the Wood Rendezvous have been removed from Craig City Park, delivered to new locations, and will be permanently installed within the next few weeks. Typically, the carvings would stay at City Park for a longer duration, but two factors intervened, Pike said. First, the wood used at this year’s event — beetle-kill pine — is prone to cracking. Second, many of this year’s works were delicately carved by artists.
