It was a hobby at first. William Weberding was recovering from serious illness at the young age of six…and needed something to do to pass the time! I think you can guess that one.

Years pass and Weberding honed his skill and found a way to turn his hobby into a career. Though William Weberding has sadly passed away, his dream still lives on: his three sons now run the family business. Happily, there is a wood carver or two in the group.

With all that experience (and a great story) behind them, well, this is a mom and pop shop that you have to see to believe! It’s incredible. Really. It doesn’t hurt that Weberding’s Wood Carving shop is located in a super fun Indiana town, too!

You’ll find a wide range of hand-carved items in this large shop. We saw tiny ornaments and crosses to larger items like pieces of hand-carved furniture and even some big stuff in process of repair for an Indiana church!

It’s pretty incredible. little Indiana (that’s me!) got to go behind the scenes and see a wood carver at work.

Seeing him carving at figures with faces, well, it’s impressive to say the least. You know me and my lack of artsy skills! Stick figures are seriously a stretch but to see someone capable of turning a hunk of wood into a work of art? Makes me proud to be a Hoosier!
