Whittle the Wood returns this weekend

Staff reports
From left, carvers Jim Valentine, of Salt Lake City; Matt Ounsworth, of Fort Collins; Damon Gorecki, of Salt Lake City; and Nate Hall of Lincoln, Nebraska gather Tuesday afternoon at Loudy-Simpson Park. The four of them are among the six total competitors in this week's Whittle the Wood Rendezvous. The event returns for 2021 after a year's hiatus and will feature four days of chainsaw woodworkers making artworks out of tree trunks. The event also includes food and crafts booths, a Quick Carve competition, movie in the park, and live music by local and national acts.
