I have begun to carve Contemporary Decoys, or Antique Style Decoys. These type of birds are very interesting to research and then attempt to carve in the manner of some of the great carvers of 80-100 years ago.
If you might be interested in a single or a full hunting rig, please don't hesitate to call or send an email for a quote.
I'm just trying to do my part in preserving a part of the past, by helping to preserve the heritage of the hand carved decoy. Most of the decoys I carve are solid cedar bodies with basswood heads.
These carvings are either for sale or have already been sold as noted, but the pictures give an idea of the style of carvings that I do. If you are interested in obtaining any of my work, or a carved family heirloom to be shared for the generations to come, please don't hesitate call or email me.
