This is an original creature wood carving, created by me, Josh Carte, here in Ohio. This handmade woodworking makes a perfect birthday gift for him or her.

Everything in my shop is hand carved by me, Josh Carte.


"Monkey Business"

'Mokey Business' measures 7" tall, 5 1/4" wide at widest point and 5" thick.

This crazy creature is carved in a piece of Spruce nodule/heal growth.. 'Tis a very gnarly piece of wood :)

This is a wall-hanging sculpture. I have attached a hanger, along with the name of the carving, the date and my signature on the back. Also included is a Certificate telling a bit about me and the carving :)

This is a one-of-a-kind sculpture in a very unique piece of wood. There will never be another creature just like this one!

I carve using rotary hand tools (very similar to the tools of a dentist). There is a hand piece, a flexible shaft and a foot pedal, all powered by a hanging motor that assist me in bringing my visions to life. I like to use just a tad of oil paint to accentuate my cuts.

This carving is finished with spray urethane.


SHIPPING IS INCLUDED in the price of the carving to the USA! Please see my "Policies" for international shipping.

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.
