Here's My Woodcarving!
By Jim Brown
Colorado Springs, CO


I started out by doing large custom commission pieces for years. I decided to stop that line of work about five years ago (age catches up you know) and looked for a smaller size work for my energy. I was scrolling the internet when I found an outlet for using scroll saws from a craftsman named Steve Garrison. He gave me the basic concept for a shell design and then the variations you see below are from my own imagination. I've probably made about fifty originals since it is hard to make a duplicate from the same "tree."

Shell Group

My "Colorado Sea Shells" are segmented scroll-saw carvings. I use various wood combinations and adaptions, creating unique shapes and colors. The shells are a wonder, and instant attention getters.

Nautilus Starburst
Conch Shell 1
Murex
Conch Shell 2
Aspen Shell - 12" Diameter
