Vintage Views are nostalgic views of early carving projects of a carving journey begun around 1975 as a budding hobby rekindling childhood memories of whittling as a playful activity of creative exercises of imagination.  Many of these early projects were done in a casual schedule of spontaneous inspiration in a slow methodical process of learning while doing by shaping a block of wood with a knife. Many have not been seen in public other than at “show and tell” at carving club meetings and reflect early attempts of doing the best one could do at the time with the level of skill and design reflective of growing with experience.

The projects depicted in this gallery represent MINIATURE carving projects that were carved between 1975 and 2010.  Miniatures are carvings that fit into a two inch cube (smaller than two inches.)


Miniatures, like the Santa carved on the top of stick are separated from the stick after it is fully carved and painted. The stick is used to hold while the miniature is being carved.
