World Champion Bob King!


Bob King, from Edgewood, WA, started carving in the Fall of 1998 after seeing a local chainsaw carver, carving at the fair.  He entered his first competition after carving only three bears and has been competing ever since. In 2010, Bob was honored with a star in the Carvers Walk of Fame in Mulda, Germany for winning more competitions than anyone in the world! He has been invited to represent the United States in competitions in Germany, England, Scotland, Denmark, Holland ,and Canada.
