This is a wood carving of a wood spirit. It is hand carved by me, Josh Carte. This original piece of art makes a perfect wood gift for him, her or oneself. It will be great for an anniversary or birthday.

"Crank"... 19" tall, 2 3/4" wide and 2 1/4" thick.

I carved Crank in a Pine knots. Pine knots are sort of like the forest's driftwood. Any place a branch meets the base of a tree, a knot is formed. When the tree falls and rots away, all that is left are the pitch-filled, resilient knots. It is said that there are spirits that inhabit the knots and that's why they remain in-tact for so long. My job is to release the spirits.

I normally use a tad bit of oil paint to accentuate the cuts that I make on Pine knots. This one is left natural. I really love this one!

All of my art is completely original! I spend many hours and sometimes days or more on each piece that I create.

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.
