Wildwood Flower Wood Carving, a Tribute to Song

The music becomes the flower.

The music becomes the flower.

Jake Cress of Fincastle, Virginia carved this musical wood plaque out of cherry, in tribute to the ubiquitous four petaled dogwood tree – – and to the song “Wildwood Flower” by the Carter Family, also from Virginia. Of course you’ve heard it, but check it out one more time, if only to hear Mother Maybelle’s impressive finger picking. 

Update- See below for a photo of the finished carving.

The finished piece, carved in cherry, 4 1/2" wide by 20" long.
