Original Carvings and Sculptures

If you would like to order a carving I will need some time for completion. Approximately 2 to 4 weeks depending on the difficulty of the piece.

All carvings are made to order one at a time as I have very few in stock, No two carvings are exactly alike. Although they can be similar, each carving is a one-of-a-kind. Carvings in natural wood may vary considerably.

Pricing is based on the complexity of the work involved and amount of time to complete. The prices shown on each page are for those individual carvings. If a carving is shown with a stand, it is included. Otherwise it is free-standing or a wall hanging.

If there is anything you want changed, added, resized, painted, not painted etc., It could effect the price. Some pricing for custom orders may need to be negotiated.

If you decide you would like to purchase a carving please contact me to confirm total cost. Payment can be made by check or money order. Or an invoice can be sent to you via e-mail which allows you to pay using a major credit card or PayPal. The credit card transaction will direct you through the simple and secure process hosted by the PayPal system of electronic payments, however, you do
not need a PayPal account. The carving will ship when payment is received.

I prefer shipping U.S. Postal service. I will only charge you for the package or container the carving is shipped in and the shipping cost. Upon confirming the address where you want the carving shipped, I will try to have a total price within 24 to 48 hours. If you live in the Nashville, TN area contact me and I could possibly deliver your carving to you.

Please keep in mind, I mostly carve “found” wood. This is exactly what it sounds like. I find it in the woods. It is not kiln dried. Although I try to carve seasoned pieces, natural or “found” wood is subject to checking (cracking). If a piece is already cracked, I carve on the opposite side. If there are no large cracks, I may cut a groove on the opposite side to release moisture in the wood. This also relieves pressure and stress in the piece and reduces further cracking. I cannot guarantee a piece will not crack further or on the face of the carving. My personal opinion is that many times it adds more character to the piece.

I do my best to identify the wood species. As I stated above, I like to find naturally dried and dead pieces in the woods that are interesting to me. Usually there are no leaves and some can be identified by the bark or wood itself and some cannot. If it can, it is noted in the description below the piece. If not, it is not listed.

The most common wood species I work with are:
Oak (red & white), Hickory, Red Cedar, Pine, Poplar, Walnut and Basswood.
