Making The Best From The 2011 Flood


A couple brothers are making the best out of the Missouri River flood of 2011.

Avereal Smart is carving designs into tree trunks at his brothers home on South Washington Street.

The trees died as a result of the 2011 flood.

Instead of cutting the entire tree down, he's leaving the trunks in place, and making wood carvings out of them.

"I'm taking this tree stump here and turning it into bear scene with a tree and a little beehive and he's kind of peeking around the corner, looking up toward the porch and toward the front of the house," Avereal Smart said.

Smart used to do carvings for a living.

After the trunks are carved Smart then sands them and puts a finish on them to protect the wood.
