Several years ago, I bought a pair of old church pews at an auction. They were a little weather beaten, but still in good enough condition to do ‘something’ with. Eventually I found the time to start carving one. I used my old, cheap tools and slogged through it. I learned a lot about wood carving and tools and staining and four months later I had a special piece of furniture. It is available for purchase.
Here’s a recent (July 2023) sculpture I made from scrap metal and hand carved basswood, I’ve also added a little glass and leather to make this a very mixed media project. It was a challenge, but I’m happy with how it turned out.
I still have this first pew for sale (below), but have since been commissioned to make some other carvings. Below are some projects I have completed.
If you have any questions about my carvings or would like to talk about commissioning me to create a custom wood carving for you, please contact me.
Below are some links which will show the the ‘progress’ of these projects.
Here’s a short (under 1 minute) video which shows the progression of the wood carving of a toy box panel:
