My name is Nate Elarton. I started carving wood in 2007. A friend introduced me to carving. I ran a chisel through some cedar and just got very interested in woodcarving. I have carved on and off since then but the last few years have increased my carving and my interest has grown.
I enjoy everything about carving. I love the learning, the planning of a project, and seeing that project finished. I love the carving community, friendships, and new people to meet.
Woodcarving has been a gift to my life. I can’t draw or paint a picture, but I love carving one.
I live in Temperance Michigan, have been so happily married for 33 years to an amazing and beautiful woman, Wendy. I have 3 amazing adult children that are all married. My wife, Wendy and I pastor a great church we planted in 1996, Compelled Church with a campus in Temperance, MI and Toledo Ohio. I also enjoy leadership, mountain biking, music, I play bass and piano and write on another site @ Nateelarton.com
