Shipping to United States: Free

This is a wood carving that hangs on the wall. It was hand carved by me, Josh.

“Life of the Party”

18 3/4” tall, 3 1/2” wide, 2” thick

I really enjoy mixing up proportions and adding creative twists to my carvings. This guy is definitely one of a kind. There will never be another carving just like this one!

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 :)

I created this sculpture in a Pine knot. Any place a branch of a Pine tree meets the base of the tree a knot is formed. When the tree falls down and rots away, the only things that remain are the pitch-filled, resilient knots. It is said that there are spirits that inhabit the knots that allow them to remain in-tact long after the rest of the tree has rotted away. Every knot is unique, stable and beautiful. My job is to release the spirits!

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.

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.
