Thanks and see ya!
This carving is a larger one. He stands 4' 9.5" tall and the diameter is 18". He is carved from cedar, has an oil finish. The fish is 18" long, and is a separate carving. You can choose to have something else in his hands, like your address, or name, etc. You can also choose to have something carved on the front of the base.

Who I am & how I carve

a BLOG for me!
I'm gonna attempt to show you what I create when I create it,
so you know what I have available!
I love and live carving. I love wood. Crave it.
And when I see a log, preferably cedar, I invision in my mind what it is... and start carving!
It's a long process from beginning to end.
Starts with the roughing out, with the chainsaw.
Then the detailing, again with the chainsaw.
I then smooth out and fine finish.
Finally comes the stain, or burning, for coloring
and the finish coats. Several of them.

I've been carving for 16+ years. Been running a chainsaw most of my life, cutting wood. Didn't know I had the talent until I met another wood carver who was a very talented artist. He showed me how to carve, and I've been carving ever since. To heck with cuttin' firewood!

I live at the foot of Mt. Hood in Zigzag. Built my own home. Live in it with my wife, Danella, and our three cats. My shop is a few steps from my home, so I don't have to drive to work. I've a bit over 2 acres. Lots of room to roam and spread out. If I'm home, I'm open for business! Stop in and say hi.

Following blogs will have postings of what I do, and am doing. Keep checking back. Maybe you'll see something you love!
