welcome to the forum, Peter !! I see you are in the Netherlands.
yes, there are carvers here.
some are extremely talented, some are versatile in many areas of the craft,
and some are “whittlers” that only do knife work.
what do you like doing ?? you can post some photos of your work to your “Projects” page.

Yes, Peter, there are some woodcarvers here – even one that does relief carvings based on the graphic designs of your fellow Nederlander Maurits C. Escher:
