Florence Library Presents Local Woodcarving Demonstration



The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library’s first fall virtual program will feature local business, From Trunks to Trays LLC. Follow along as Cindy and Carroll Lawrimore introduce their business and demonstrate carving a bowl. It will air on the library’s webpage and Facebook page starting Tuesday September 27, 2021.

Owner, Cindy Lawrimore and her husband, Carroll, the designer and carver, have been creating handmade wooden pieces for over six years. The business grew from a hobby that Carroll started after he inherited a third generation dough bowl with a hole in it. He learned woodcarving from an old friend, Buddy Davis of Stuckey, SC, who at age 90 still continues to carve beautiful bowls and trays. From Trunks to Trays’ pieces are carved from a variety of wood, including tupelo, ash, elm, black walnut, cypress, cherry, chinaberry, maple, pecan, poplar, and sycamore. Since they are hand carved/chiseled no two pieces are alike and all pieces are finished with food safe mineral oil and beeswax.

From Trunks to Trays LLC is located in Hemingway. Shopping is done by appointment, which can be made by calling or texting 843-933-0310 or by emailing the Lawrimores Clawrimore@frontier.com . The couple also has a Facebook page for their business www.facebook.com/fromtrunkstotrays/
