Here's My Woodcarving!
By Kenan Schultz
Baytown, TX

I have been woodworking for about 20 years or so. I consider myself as a boxmaker/carver, although most of my work has been carving for about the last 5 years. Most of my carving is in the round and I carve in various hardwoods, using traditional carving tools and sometimes power carving tools. I'm not a purist, I'm just an old guy that doesn't like to listen to the noise of machines.

I find most of my inspiration from nature. My main interest is carving horse busts, but I have recently been enamored with carving owls. I can't seem to get them out of my mind, so I carve them!

My latest stylized barn owl is carved from one piece of black walnut with the exception of the carved African Blackwood talons that were applied. The carving is about 10" tall.

Meercats carved in a Cypress knee:

"Dream Catcher" carved in Mahogany on an oak burl base.
Bandsaw Bird boxes made in various woods:
Carousel horse that is a work in progress:
"Moonscape" made in curly oak with wenge accents.
Various woods for the inlay and dyed leather.
