Not Just For Pretty

2 Cote stump man 14 Cote carving


Tom Cote of Limestone, Maine comes from a long line of talented woodcarvers. In fact, his great, great grandfather, Jean Baptiste Cote of Quebec, carved church altars .  Tom learned to carve wood from his mother and now he’s teaching his grand-daughter.

Tom only uses hand tools – nothing motorized. He works with mallets, chisels, and knives and he can carve anything from toothpicks to… donut turners.


Tom Cote was recorded at the American Folk Festival in Bangor in 2010. Photos by Peter Dembski
