Here's My Woodcarving!
By Dan Katz
Chattanooga, TN


I have been in the woodworking and furniture industry for 45 years. I started out in the Vinyl Repair business which I learned while living at the Lighthouse Ranch in Eureka, CA in 1974. My business soon evolved into upholstery and furniture repair. It was at that time that I developed an interest in antiques and woodcarving. I began restoring antiques and building furniture and learned to carve and use the lathe.

One of my carvings is on display at the IBJM Jewish History Museum in Hixson, TN. Another large commission was for two 7 foot Menorahs which are housed at Congregation Beth Hallel in Birmingham, AL.

I started carving monograms last year and I am in the process of completing the entire alphabet. They will be mounted in 16"x16" floating frames for wall mounting. Some of my letters will be on display at the Shuptrine Gallery in Chattanooga this spring. The letters range from 8"x8" to 12"x12". They are made out of Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Sycamore. All are hand carved. I do not use any CNC, lasers or Dremel type power tools for the carving.
