Please Contact Me to Inquire About Purchasing Any Carving

Many of the carvings in the photos on this site are likely to have been already purchased. I may have a similar carving in the same or another kind of wood that you can purchase. Otherwise, you may commission an entirely new and/or different carving (so long as it is a bird). I will be happy to prepare drawings of a proposed carving for your approval.

Time-Frame to Complete Your Carving

Because each carving is individually hand crafted, some from very old logs or beams, it may take me 30 days or more to plan and complete the carving of your choice.


The value of a particular carving depends upon the size, type of wood, and the condition and shape of the wood. For example, carvings from round wood, such as logs, cost more, as do large carvings and carvings from vintage woods, such as American chestnut. Because of these variables, I do not list prices. However, as a guide, the least costly are the “Little birds” in “Back-Yard Birds,” which retail for about twenty dollars each and the large eagle carvings in “Birds of Prey” are one thousand dollars or more.


You may pay with cash, a personal check, or PayPal. If you are local and can visit, you may also pay with a credit card.


Maryland residents pay sales tax.


I assure you that you will be satisfied. I hope you are more than just satisfied. I hope you are excited to own an individually handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, solid wood carving. However, if you are not satisfied with a carving and you return it at your expense undamaged within 10 days after you receive it, I will refund your money (less any shipping charges and credit card fees).
