About the Author

Dennis "Pop" Moor, along with his son Todd, has taken the carving world by storm, winning numerous international awards. The carving, teaching, and judging reputation of this father-son team is exceptional, especially because of the entertaining approach they take to their art. Dennis and Todd's weekly television series has introduced viewers to all areas of woodcarving and wood art and has helped to establish the duo as highly sought-after personalities at woodcarving shows and competitions. It is no wonder these two are often called "The Canadian Masters." Together, they founded Chipping Away Incorporated, dedicated to the advancement of woodcarving and wood art.
