Announcement   Welcome,

Thank you very much for stopping by. My name is John Rettenmeier, I am from Ashford, Connecticut. Ashford is in the "Quiet Corner" of eastern Connecticut, a short ways from Storrs.

I have been woodcarving since 1985, it is a part time hobby turned into a part time business. I have sold my work since 1988.

My carvings are all carved from eastern pine, milled right here in eastern Connecticut. The carvings are done one at a time, by hand. I use gauges and knives to do most of the work. I use water based latex paint, add some stain for a nice patina look, and when complete they are finished with a hard wax to give it protection for many years to come. My work includes: songbirds, ducks, shorebirds, fish, folk art, seasonal items, folk art wood signs and whatever else I get the urge to carve.

My goal is to offer a very quality carving at an affordable price. I want people to enjoy American hand crafted items.

Each carving is signed, dated and comes with a tag.
