I’m a novice carver that has found that passion within the grains of wood, while balancing homeschooling two young children and managing a small homestead. My carving journey started with a piece of firewood pulled out of the stack on a cold winters day. In front of the fireplace, with knife and axe in hand and two young kids looking on in bewilderment I started my journey. It was a brutal start, learning many hard lessons, with mistakes or just lack of knowledge… but it was so real… and I loved it. This journey and every journey through life is always a continuous one. Constantly seeking out resources and knowledge, new techniques, challenging myself and always learning and absorbing as I walk along this path.
