There was a lot of rot to this knot. Once I cut out the rot, this is what I got. Now, this knot’s not got a lot of rot.

I made this carving in a Pine knot. Pine knots are sort of like the forest’s driftwood. Every place a branch meets the base of a Pine tree, a knot is formed. When the tree dies, and decays back into the earth, all that remain are the pitch-filled, resilient knots. It is said that a spirit resides within each knot, allowing them to live on for so long. My job is to release the spirits.
I carved this knot using many different tools. I began with a chainsaw and finished with bits as small as needles. I added just a bit of oil paint to accentuate my cuts.
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh.
I include a certificate with each of my Wood Spirit Carvings that tells a bit about me and my process. I will sign and date the back of the carving.

This is a one-of-kind carving. There will never be another just like this one.

I really enjoy creating themed walking sticks such as Odin, Thor, Baron Samedi or many, many other possibilities. If you'd like a stick with bears, owls, or whatever else you might have in mind, just shoot me a message and we can discuss it.

My carvings can be cleaned using many different methods. A feather duster works nicely. Compressed air (duster or air compressor) also works well. If on a porch or indoors, my carvings will never need a new coat of sealer. Chainsaw carvings that are outdoors will need a fresh coat of sealer each year.
