Shipping to United States: Free

This is a wood carving that hangs on the wall. It was made by hand, by me, Josh. This wood spirit will make a perfect gift.

I made this old, resting man wood carving in a piece of Ironwood. I used different bits, sanders and grinders to bring him to life. He started out as a branch of Ironwood, and ended up an old, curly-haired fella' :)

I didn't use any paint, stain or dye on this wood carving. It is completely natural, other than the single coat of sealer I used to help protect the wood from dust.

"Resting in Peace".... 9 1/2" tall, 2 1/2" wide, 2 1/4" thick...

This is a wall-hanging carving. I attached a hanger on the back, so when you receive this carving, all you have to do is hang him. I signed and dated the back, as well. I include a certificate of authenticity with all of my wood spirit carvings.

I carve everyday! It's what I love to do and what I do for a living. There is nothing that makes me happier or feel more at ease than working with wood.

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.
