Welcome to my gallery, look around. It are all hobby's.


In my gallery I try to show how some works grow. The best way is to imaging something that you want to make. Watch the wood and look if it is in the wood. Then you have to get it out of the wood by carving. During the carving it is possible that the structure of the wood you give another idee. Use it. Don't hurry because if the wood has gone, its done. Make a drawing and make it 3-D in wood.

Thanks all of you for the comment. Together with you it makes my art and my gallery for what it is.

Today, 10 sept 2014, the deviations were viewed 100.000 times WOW :-) thanks all of you!

My daily profession is appraiser for the property tax. My father was a professional woodcarver. I could watch how to do it. I could use his tools etc. Beside this I have a great affaction with nature. That's why i studied forrestry . I like hunting in the forrest as well with my eyes as with my gun. With all of this in my bag, I try to make realistic sculptures and paintings at the moments that it thickles.

Recently finished my second cane "Poisonous" think you'd like it.  What wood are you using on the Roe head?

It's a cane with realy small frogs. Good work. Took a lot of time I think! and maybe a few fingers :-).  I mostly use oak because I have a lot of it and it makes the carvings durable.

Yes Red Oak is readily available and it is what I have most of.  The problem with the new cane is it's fragility, one instance of neglect would render the entire piece too easily damaged.  This design was not the best for a cane but the idea popped into my head and after a 10 min sketch I had the preliminary concept down and started working on the wood from there.  I guess I need to put more thought into what I'm planning to carve. AtLA - Sokka Facepalm   I think I've fainted.

A utensil does not always have to be used. Maybe on a special occasion and otherwise as a decoration on the wall
