Hand carved in Sugar Maple burl by me, Josh :)
I signed and dated the back. There is also a hanger on the back for easy installation.
This is a very large and wonderful piece of burl.
I am in charge of everything that goes on in this shop....The carving, packaging, listing, shipping, communication...It's all me. I don't have any elves, helpers or workers. So, when you buy from me, you are supporting me and my family. We really appreciate you!
I used a whole lot of different tools to make this carving. It began with a sketch and ended with lots of sand paper and urethane. In between were jig saws, hand tools and router bits. This type of carving is called, "pierced relief". It is a very time consuming style of carving but I love every minute of it! This is truly a one of a kind carving.
There are some live edges and bark inclusions to this carving. I really love this type of wood. These burls grow on Sugar Maples and are just amazing to me. Many sprouts are sent to one area where a burl is formed and the resulting wood is very hard with interlocking grain. The dark, lace of this piece is very unique.
I carve everyday for a living :)
I live in the woods, so I'm very inspired by what's around me- trees, animals and sometimes people :)
If there is anything that I can do for you at all...Questions, concerns...Just wanna talk about wood.. :) Send me a message here on Etsy, an email at carpcuts [!at] live.com or call/text 740-979-5511. Thanks!

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.
