This is a wood carving of a creepy, wood spirit. It is hand carved in a single piece of driftwood by me, Josh.
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me. I don't have any elves or helpers, so when you buy from me, you are helping a small business and family, not some large corporation. We thank you :)
"Lady's Man"...16" tall, 6" wide, 2 1/2" thick... Spruce Driftwood
I made this carving using several different tools. I began with a chainsaw and worked my way down to a bit that is as thin as a needle. I finished this carving with polyurethane, and then I used thinned-down oil paints.
I really wanted to get this guy looking pretty spooky. So, I used a lot of dark paint washes to give him a very dramatic and creepy look. I love doing this sort of thing.
I carve everyday for a living. Its what I love to do :) I take great pride in all of my work, so you can be assured that I will take excellent care when packaging and shipping your wood carvings.
As this is a piece of driftwood, it could have gathered bugs and other unwanted bits. I heat treated this piece of wood, so that there are no bugs and this carving will not crack or split over time. Removing almost all of the moisture from the wood helps to stabilize the wood and keep it in one piece. The carving will last as long as you, and possibly even longer. I sealed this carving for indoor hanging.
This is a wall-hanging carving. I have attached a hanger on the back, along with the date and my signature. I include a certificate of authenticity with all of my wood spirit carvings.

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.
