Charles Wolfe of Fayetteville shows one of his woodcarvings, a red-tailed hawk. He took six years to complete the carving.

The feathers of a scissortail flycatcher emerge from a block of wood when Charles Wolfe gets busy carving birds at his garage-turned-studio in Fayetteville.

Wolfe adds detail to the feathers of a carving.
