Chuck Dellinger, Noah’s son, started working in wood by learning to carve at a summer camp at the age of 12. He enjoys taking a tree trunk or limb and turning it into a work of art to be used, appreciated, and enjoyed. He creates small pieces such as spoons and cups and also large furniture pieces such as stools, tables, and chairs. Dellinger has displayed some of his work at The Sawtooth Center and also in galleries in Blowing Rock and in Mount Airy.
