Its March right now and wintertime is still in full swing here in Alaska. I thought this would be a great time to post items I have in inventory right now for people thinking about buying chainsaw carvings or sculptures for their home and get a jump on spring. These are items I have in stock right now, most of them I made right before winter fully hit in October, so let me know if you are interested in anything. The tourist season will not start for at least another month so I am more apt to negotiate right now than lets say May-September when I cannot keep anything on the lot. Call (907-230-0812) or e-mail me ([email protected])
These are some very homely “welcome bear sculptures ” that I have in inventory that you may be interested in for your porch or front yard. All the signs in their hands can be customized to say anything or you can pick for a list of pre-made ones. 2″ Bears $200 3″ Bears $450 4″ Bears $600
I have a lot of these “bear bears” right now. I love these things. They always make an instant hit at any party. Every guy should have one. I make these bear bears in almost every size imaginable. $120 $160 w/shipping
I have several moose wood carvings that I have already made. I try to make as many funny ones as possible as that’s what most people like. This is a goofy moose sculpture I made in the fall not too long before the snow hit. I call this one the “rum keg happy moose” and it has red cedar horns. $750
I have many different types of welcome moose carvings as well. They come in all shapes and sizes. I have some smiling and some more realistic. Again, all the signs can be customized to say whatever you want. Prices range from $90 for the 1″ to $450 for the 4″.
This is an Orca whale carving that sits on a wall. I usually make these in sizes 2″ or 4″ but I can carve any size anyone wants. This is one of my favorites. $400-$700
I do not get a lot of orders for this one, its sort of a niche item, but I love to make these. I have one of these right now. Its a wall mount sea otter wood carving. I got this idea at the harbor in Homer, AK where there is an older otter that the locals call “Papa” Do not know who was the first to name him that but it stuck. This was my tribute to him. $450 with starfish or clam
Loved making this. I made this whale sculpture from Alaska spruce wood. Took several days to carve, sand, and paint but it came out extremely well. I have one of these in my gallery right now. Let me know if you are interested in this one. This is another semi niche item that I got an order on over the summer and then made another one…this one. I have had a lot of interest in it but no one has bought it. If you are interested I will give you a fairy decent price on it compared to what I wanted to sell it for in August. $1500
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to let me know. I welcome all sorts of suggestions and questions about my work, pricing, shipping, wood, wildlife, fishing, you name it. I love customers that really get into it and are enthusiastic about my work.
This year I plan to be attending several chainsaw carving competions in the summer. One of the ones I am anticipating the most is chainsaw contest in Seldovia, AK which happens to be close to Homer and one of the best fishing spots in Alaska. There are several in Oregon I plan on going on as well. I have been training a lot lately.
Though I consider myself a wildlife specialist I am challenging myself by carving humans now. Its totally different. I know animals, I study them (22 years of being a die hard hunter), I draw them, there isn’t anything I do not know or understand about a bear or moose, including all their shapes and hidden curves. I know how they react, think, and move. Humans are different. And everyone knows what they look like. You carve a female sculpture and get one line out of place and people see that. You make her lips crocked or her arms not proportioned then people notice that. I have to change my whole perception.
