  1. Gun Stock Carving: Walnut Stock Carved with a Wildlife Scene, Flying Ring Necked Pheasant & Oak Leaf

  2. Bayou Gator

    This project is a custom order. I have never done a gator before so it was interesting. The picture itself is made of 5/8" Walnut. It is 15" long and just right at 12" tall at the top of the bark, with the base. Live edges on the top. I also modified the pattern as I wanted to keep the...
  3. Intarsia Lion's New Mate (Lioness).

    This one was just finished. I made the original male lion last year for my parents (last two pictures). They loved it so much and were so happy to have it I wanted to do a female to match. I hope you can see some small improvements because when I made the first one I had only been doing...
  4. Some recent wildlife portraits

    All cut from 1/2" poplar. These are just fun to cut. Gluing them together can be a bit tedious though.
  5. The Box Plot ... a custom jewelry box created for a clandescent proposal.

    The Box Plot … one of these days I need to lay this article out in publisher and generate a formal PDF version. For now - here's the text and some images are posted above! The Box Plot Article by Eric M. Saperstein - June 2006 There is a goal shared by artists spanning all mediums and...
  6. Some segmented wildlife portraits

    I have done probably 20 of these segmentations. They are all cut from 1-x-12 Poplar and measure around 12-x-12. They are cut from a pattern, stained and reassembled with a slight 3D effect that was surprising the first time I assembled one. The book is called Animal Portraits in Wood by Neal...
  7. Cougar

    I used a scroll saw to cut out this cougar from birch ply. Took a thin mirror and put that as a backing to show depth and then framed in pine.
  8. Picture frames

    I built three identical frames for my brother to display some wildlife pictures he found. I used half lap joints for the corners and set in some 12 gauge shotgun shells to make it more interesting. I found for me the easiest way to add the place for the glass to go is to build the frame and...
  9. Elk

    This picture is has some elements from more than one pattern. I kind of put my own little twist on it. What can I say, it fit the piece of wood I had picked out. The wood itself is Oak and is 3/4" thick. It was a little hard to cut beings how it looks to be an end piece near the tree. It...
  10. Wolf Welcome

    I made this picture awhile back. It needed a backer because was too thin to be on it own. The backer that I finally settled on was a Oak door off some cabinets. I painted the inside of the door black for contrast and left the outside natural. The welcome sign is made from 1/4" Red Oak The...
  11. Eagle in flight

    Philippine Mahogany, Poplar, Oak, and Basswood, 37" wingspan. This boy was quite a challenge.
  12. Tiger

    Maple, Walnut, and Birch. Measures 16"x17". Finish is poly. Was much easier than the eagle!
  13. Horned Owl, Birds of Prey, Birds, Great Horned Owl

    I did this Owl for my Husband. He used to have it sitting on his desk at work. Someone had knocked it off and he brought it home for repair. He actually cut thin stips of Lacewood, then glued them all together. The Lacewood looks like feathers. I didn't know what I was going to make out of...
  14. Elk Country

    I had this piece of wood that I picked out from the sawmill. It is a piece of Locust, so pretty with all the colors, it has orange, pink, yellow. This is the second time I have cut this pattern. The first one was a donation to the Elk Foundation. This piece is long enough that I had to use...
  15. Wildlife Cutting Boards

    Well I tried my hand at making cutting boards and here they are. They are not the traditional lots of pieces cutting boards but, I think they will do. They are made of two pieces of Maple, 1/2" and 1/4". The inlay is 1/4" Walnut. The Moose is 15 3/4" long by 8 1/2" wide by 3/4" thick. The...

    When the time comes to commemorate your passions there are a variety of ways to immortalize them into an heirloom. Some commission a portrait, many take photographs, a few write songs or keep journals and almost everyone tells stories. Braking for the norm, consider a masterpiece in wood. This...

    "Whitetail Sunrize" is a titled hand carved wildlife scene. The development of this project was completed in collaboration with Sasha Nugent to create a birthday present for her father Ted Nugent.

  18. "Shiloh Prairie" - Hand Carved Panoramic Scene Featuring an 1874 Shiloh Sharps Rifle

    Scanning through this site it seems there's a good mix of pro's, hobbyists, and somewhere in between … all are covered quite well. Those who do things as a hobby can take their time, often excessive time - which means some of you "amateurs" produce a level of quality and detail that those in a...
  19. Deer Gun Stock

    Finished this request today for an upcoming shooting competition. This will be presented to the top shooter of the day. Each month they ask me for a different type of prize. Last month I did another deer head for them which you can see in my gallery. Can't wait to design next months already...
