Sorry, this item has sold.

I carved this guy in an oddball piece of wood. There are bark inclusions and voids. I used one of the natural projections to give him something to smoke :)

“Smoking Wood”

10” tall, 9” wide, 2 1/2” thick

This carving began as just a plain chunk of wood. I used several different grinders to cut away at the wood until a face emerged. I worked my way down from large, aggressive bits to tiny, delicate cutters. I finished this piece with spray urethane and a touch of oil paint.


This carving is ready to hang. I signed and dated the back. I include a certificate with all of my Wood Spirit Carvings.

Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I sometimes take custom orders :) Contact me and we can discuss the specifics.

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.

I am also happy to make custom chainsaw carvings of about any animal or object you'd like.

I know that, as a customer, you expect a certain level of control over the custom process and I, as an artist, expect a certain level of freedom. When we are able to meet in the middle, beautiful things can happen :)

Don't be afraid to message me :) Thanks so much!

Care instructions

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.
