About this Article

Many people stop by the Winter Wood Wonders carving show at the Kane County Fairgrounds just looking for something different to do indoors on a cold winter day. "They're not expecting much," carver Bob Mau said. "A lot of people come in and they're bored. Then they wander around and they're just shocked at what they see. "They say to me, Wow, this is good stuff and it's really neat. I had no idea.'"
