DesignerFirewood's Shop Announcement

I do commission carvings for some clients so if your interested in a custom carving let me know and we can work something out. My favorite carvings are flowers, woodspirits, songbirds and birds of prey, walking sticks, and custom canes. I always joke that I create Designer Firewood because if they don't turnout they can always end up in the woodstove.

Just a little about me...

I belong to the Lakes Area Woodcarving Club in Forest Lake Minnesota & Viking Woodcarving Club in Bloomington Minnesota. I have a very understanding wife that allows me to neglect her and spend much of my spare time carving.

Due to the nature of wood with its varying grains and colors, no two pieces are ever exactly alike.

For ideas of the type of carvings I enjoy doing and pictures of my past carvings please visit my LumberJocks webpage I often will have various canes and walking sticks shown there that I have carved on commission for friends and clients locally that were special ordered by them.

I am constantly finishing carvings and selling them here on Esty, at craft shows here in Minnesota and sometimes on so please feel free to come back here often to see if anything new is listed.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my carvings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy carving them.
