AAA Editor Notes
Slim's Woodshed and Museum is at 160 1st St. N.W. Stanley “Slim” Maroushek, who owns this combination antique shop and museum, has spent the last 50 years collecting more than 4,500 wood carvings from Austria, Germany, Japan, Russia and other countries around the world—some historic, some priceless and more than a few with a heartwarming story behind the artist.
Viking heads, a cigarette box and a 15-foot-tall chainsaw carving of Uncle Sam are all on display, but the highlight is a 120-piece three-ring circus, each item painstakingly carved by hand. Many pieces are for sale, along with different types of wood and all the tools of the woodcarver's trade.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
