CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME!
My shop contains an assortment of unique, hand crafted wood carvings that can be displayed for the holidays or for any time of year. I love wood...I love everything about wood! I love the way it looks and smells, and the way it cuts with a sharp knife. I started wood carving as a teenager and have now been wood carving for nearly 50 years. I enjoy taking an ordinary block of wood and making it come to life!

Over the years I have won numerous ribbons for my work at various woodcarving competitions around the country, including First, Third and Fifth place in the 2015 Caricature Carvers of America national competition. Today my wood carvings are found in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, UK, Denmark, Australia and Afghanistan.

All of my wood carvings are hand carved with just a wood carving knife and small hand gouges. My tools are extremely sharp so there is rarely a need for sanding. Also, I like to let the knife cuts show on my wood carvings to give them a more rustic, hand carved, handmade appearance. And every wood carving is signed with my personal logo.

As you will see in my shop I enjoy carving all kinds of subjects…usually whatever strikes me at the time…but my favorites are Santas, tree ornaments and caricatures. I am a proud member of the National Wood Carvers Association as well as a member of the "Wood Carvers of Etsy" Team...perhaps the largest collection of wood carvers in the world! This is the team gallery link:

This Etsy shop is the only place where I sell my work.

I take pride in my relationship with my customers. If there is ANY problem, I am going to do my absolute best to make it right. It's not all about making money to me.

I welcome custom orders too, so if you don't see what you want don't be afraid to ask...if I can do it, I will. I appreciate your interest in my wood carvings and hope you enjoy browsing through my shop. I will try to add new items frequently so stop by often. Thank you for visiting!

Every year for my grandsons birthday Bob carves a new egg animal. This year it was a hedgehog, that we named Tom. Excellent workmanship and fast shipping.

About

Award-winning wood carver for over 45 years

My name is Bob and I’ll be 63 this coming December. I’ve been married to the same wonderful bride, Pat, for 38 years. I have one daughter, Christina, one grandson, AJ, and one granddaughter, Priya. My family is my life! Obviously, I enjoy wood carving but I also love fishing…especially fly fishing! I’ve been carving since I was about 15 years old. My house is now filled with wood carvings which is why I opened my Etsy shop. There is no place else to put any more wood carvings in my house so I either give them away or sell them.

I started my career in 1973 as a chemist while still finishing college. I soon became the lab manager where I stayed for 15 years. I was then snatched up by a large chemical distributor to be their operations manager. Through that job I started to get into environmental science. After 8 years there I decided to go into the field of environmental consulting. I worked for several different consulting firms before health issues forced me into early disability retirement at the age of 59. Fully retired now, I spend all of my time either wood carving, running my Etsy shop and babysitting my grandchildren. Babysitting is the best job I ever had! The pay stinks but the benefits are awesome!
