FRANK J. SCHERBER's Profile
I am a self-taught decorative decoy carver and have been carving for 20 years.
I began carving after I retired and find it relaxing, rewarding and a very enjoyable hobby.
Using mostly Tupelo wood, I enjoy creating a large variety of life sized and scaled down waterfowl, songbirds and birds of prey, many of which are mounted on beautiful bases
made from walnut. Each is dated and signed with my feather trademark.
Working with an array of tools, a rotary rasp, wood burning tool and a medium of paints and airbrush, my goal is to create pieces with a naturalistic beauty. I research the natural environment of each species, adding my special touch, bringing the carvings to life.
There are always new techniques to learn in order to advance my carving skills, which give me the satisfaction of creating pieces to be enjoyed by my customers…
