  • Smokey Mountains Carving Shops

    The family and I are going to the Smokies for vacation.I know one day will be tied up at Dollywood,so the kids can enjoy themselves.Does anyone know of any carving shops in the area that are open to the public? I'm hoping to find some shops nearby.I was in the area once before and went to some shops, but can't remember much about the places. Any and all replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your replies. groozier : :

    Groozier, Its not a carving shop, but about 20 miles north of Dollywood is a little town called Sevierville. On the highway between Sevierville and Knoxville, just north of Sevierville you will find Smoky Mountain Knife works. Not much to be had for buying carvings but they do carry a few carving knives and A LOT of sharpening suppies. This store is HUGE and they have a lot of intersting museum displays on knives and swords through the ages. They have a lot of the ususal tourist items that the rest of the family might enjoy, too.

        In Townsend, TN, you'll find a great shop by the name of Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers Supply. It's about a 25 minute drive from Pigeon Forge. Take Wears Valley Rd. from Pigeon Forge to Townsend; when you get to the T-intersection at Townsend, turn right and drive about 3 miles. It's on the right. I think you'll find it's worth the trip. Their website can be found at <www.woodcarvers.com>. Good luck and welcome to Tennessee!

              I've been to the Mountain State festival several times, and it's a real experience. You'll get great food, see great art, demonstrations of glass blowing and knife making, and have a great time. It's only real drawback is the location. There's no place to stay overnight within about 1,000 miles (maybe that's a lie). Lots' of folks come in motor homes and campers. If you got in that show, you had to be good.

                Yep!
                I also went to the Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers Supply in Townsend Tenn. while on vacation in Gatlinburg.
                I spent so much money we had to go home early ! which was ok cause it gave me time to play with the new chisels i bought !

                      I would not use regular plywood but Baltic Birch is different. On Steve Garrisons Facebook page someone posted a shell with either Baltic Birch or something like Spectraply. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of tearing or splintering with either cutting or sanding.

                      Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

                      I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

                      I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

                      And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
