About customwoodcarve

Sales 9
On Etsy since 2013

It started around two and half to three years ago.

I was watching a woman on TV who was carving an iris into a plaque of wood. Seeing what this woman was able to accomplish by carving a piece of wood inspired me and I thought to myself, “I would like to try wood carving!” The next day I bought myself some chisels, a hammer, and a plaque of wood. My first finished piece is pictured to the right.

At some point it turned into much more than sitting at my kitchen table with chisels because I realized that I have a natural talent and a passion for the trade. Around a year ago my love for wood carving outgrew my available space at the kitchen table so I devoted an entire room to my new business.

So far I’ve enjoyed working with flowers and animals, but I’m willing to try anything.

Ultimately I would like to be a wood carver full time. Right now I can only dedicate part of my time to it. I would like to make custom wood carvings for a living, filling homes with beautiful woodwork.

I can carve almost anything made out of wood, for example: wooden boxes, guns (rifle stock, shotgun), musical instruments, doors, frames, and almost anything else provided it is a reasonable size.

Soft woods like Bass and Pine are my favorite because they are the easiest to carve, but I have worked with many different kinds of wood. As a wood carver I would be willing to work with almost any type of wood, because as far as I’m concerned they are all the best.

The best way to inquire about my custom woodworking service is through Etsy or my web site.

    Carving is the most enjoyable part of my life. There isn’t much in this world that makes me happier than carving away at the wood until I have a beautiful picture, creating something out of nothing. It truly fills my life with joy!
