Here's My Woodcarving!
By Joe Smith
Estacada, OR

My name is Joe Smith and I live in the Pacific Northwest. I am currently enjoying my 60's. I have been making things from wood for a long time. I was fortunate to have a father and an older brother that were skilled with tools and I learned by watching and helping out with projects. I learned a lot from them.

My dad and mom collected old and unusual toys. I started making toys to please them and soon found that I could express myself with the craft. I like to try to add motion to the toys I make and rocking moons are a favorite subject. I also like to try a serious subject every now and then. I am most happy with something I create when it tells a little story. Furniture design and building is also something I enjoy.

Below is a small carving I did as a remembrance for my niece when her older brother passed away. He was a little boy at heart and loved to fish. The burl is Manzanita wood and the boy and cat are sugar pine.
