  1. Exposed

    My girlfriend is starting to become quite the carver. This is the finished piece (carved in maple) I showed you she was working on when I posted the bench stuff. I enjoy her working out there with me. She just needs to learn how to sharpen the chisels now and she'll be onto something. I...
  2. Green Woman #2 Variation

    My third Green Woman of original design. Hand carved with gouges as a relief wall hanging. She has all the mystery of the medieval green men who warned that the forest was a scary, dangerous place, but yet she is a little Americanized because more of her face is exposed than on a traditional...
  3. A gift for a friend , Made in haste

    I am invited to a birthday bash at a friends farm and have only two days to think of a gift with the little cash in hand or rather no cash to spare. Hence I got the picture of her profile I had and made a wood carving of her head in relief with the timber I have in my work shop. Hope she'll...

  7. Relief Carving - the "I AM" sayings of Jesus

My apologies :-) It was the winter of 2016 when I decided to undertake a new relief carving project,... a series of seven carvings that would illustrate the seven "I AM" saying of Jesus recorded in the gospel of John. Unlike other...
  8. Twenty-eight Birds

    This is another relief carving based on a graphic design of M. C. Escher. The original was titled "Sun & Moon" and was a woodcut printed in four colors.

  10. Dachshund Relief

    As my first relief carving I decided to make a picture of my girl friend's pet dachshund. We had just met in the summer, and I was planning this as a Christmas gift. I had a piece of mahogany about 10" square. Using a generic photo of a dachshund as a guide, I dug in with my palm tools and...

  14. Kayaking in Maine

    This relief carving was done as a memento of kayaking in Maine & Nova Scotia. While visiting Deer Isle I got the urge to do some carving, but had no wood.
