Ike Carpenter

Ike Carpenter is a third generation woodcarver, cabinetmaker, and carpenter who lives in the small Edgefield County town of Trenton. His grandfather was known throughout the area as a talented carpenter and his father took up wood carving at the age of fifteen. Carpenter explains that “wood is our life…it’s in our blood.” He notes jokingly that, with a last name like “Carpenter,” it is quite likely that his family’s preoccupation with wood goes way back.
