Wallace Best

Wallace Best

  • Campbellton, New Brunswick March 24th, 1952
  • Canadian

From Campbellton NB and working out of his basement workshop, Wallace was a self-taught woodworker and carver. He put a great deal of care and love into each piece of wood that he worked with as with all he did in his life. He was an avid photographer, bird-watcher, nature lover, crafter, gardener, and loving family man.

He started wood carving in his late 20s and eventually transferred his love of bird photography to wood carvings. He carved mostly birds but dabbled in other wildlife that he observed mostly from his backyard.
