Wood carvers often work in solitude, just them and the wood. But, of course, like any artist, they appreciate the public recognition. Rob Wilds recently met a woodcarver who loves his work, but loves talking to people about it just as much. Rob introduces us to Jim Choron (core-uhn) of White's Creek.
