Darien man looks to revive art of wood carving
The sour economy has led a Darien man to return to a hobby to make a living while attempting to revive an industry dying in southwestern Connecticut.
The recession chipped away at Billy Rowe's home renovation business, leading him to turn to his first love - wood carving. Using fine New England white pine, Rowe is trying to rekindle the public's interest in wood carving, and sell wooden signs to local businesses.
Rowe plans to work with the Darien Historical Society to offer wood carving classes beginning in the fall.
