I really enjoy spotting a woodcock in the forest when I go up to fish the Pere Marquette River in Michigan. Only 8 inches long and 4 inches high, a woodcock carving adds a pop of color to a shelf.
That sounds redundant since this Woodie is made of basswood. Add a little color to your cabin with a wood duck carving.
Brook or Rainbow trout doesn't matter, I love to fish for and carve trout as well as the warm water species like the walleye and smallmouth bass at the top of the page.
A frequent visitor to my feeder, the cardinal is a joy to carve on a cold winter afternoon. He is 8 inches long. I also carve female cardinals which I think are even prettier than the males!
I saw this little bluebird on a walk with my dog, Bucky, and just had to carve him. Mounted on a cherry burl he is just 5 inches tall and will fit easily on your shelf.
NOTE: I no longer sell carvings through my web site. Contact me if you are interested in a carving.
