    I am a service connected disabled Marine. I have combined my love of wood with woodworking and a desire to be creative. My carving is all original, done by hand from start to finish. As such, there are unique designs to everything I carve. I am not able to carve and hand sand to 100% perfection. I do my very best. Please understand that the carvings I make are handmade and as such, you might have something that shows minor imperfections. I am a human after all. Most of the wood that I carve is sourced from a local high school woodworking class. I take the hardwoods they don't use to create something that would otherwise fill a landfill. I examine the wood and make each carving based upon the wood. Due to this, sometimes a carving is not symmetric. That's a big part of why I love to carve. Each piece of wood has or tells a unique story when carved. I try to find, capture, and share that story. Sure you can go to a big box retailer and get cheap mass produced wooden item. But it will be nothing like what I'm offering buyers. I average about two weeks per carved item. It takes roughly sixty hours of carving and sanding from start to finish. Each carving is also boiled, steamed, and finished with food safe mineral oil. No wax, no chemicals, no stain, no paint, and/or urethane is ever used. Over time you will need to reapply more mineral oil. Apply a very thick coat of mineral oil and let is soak in for a few hours. Then rub off the excess oil and your good to go. Please don't let your carving soak in water, the more you use it, the more frequently you will need to oil it. I hope you enjoy your carving as much as I did making it. I can create custom work as well. Please let me know what your looking for.
