This is a wood carving of a Native American. I hand carved this Indian sculpture in a single piece of wood.

"Conflicted"

13" tall, 7 3/4" wide, 8" deep.....Eastern White Pine...

I created this carving in a dry piece of wood. I spent a lot of time preparing this piece so that it will not split. This is a very high quality piece of wood that will last a lifetime.

I began this carving with a chainsaw. I achieved all of my major shaping with the saw, then moved on to hand tools and sanding. I used various burrs in my rotary carving tool to finalize the shaping of this piece. I then spent many hours sanding this block until it the face was very clean and smooth. I applied some oil washes to add a little color and sealed this carving with 3 coats of spray urethane. I left the hair and necklace rough. This is the texture that the chainsaw leaves when unsanded. I really like the contrast the the rough and smooth textures creates.

I carve everyday for a living. It is what I love to do, and every new day is a new inspiration :)

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.
