Woodchuck The Wood Carver

Woodchuck Studio also known as Woodchuck the Carver is located in Hedley on Hwy 3. British Columbia

Easily accessed and with parking area the studio is open to visitors to browse, view, handle objects, watch active carving, and to try their hand at carving. This is a hobby craft artisan's studio.

This studio was established to share my enjoyment in shaping materials with hand tools. I am also enjoying exploration into viking work in wood and the study of how our forefathers used wood as a decorative/functional aspect of their lives. It is also my wish to communicate to another generation, to encourage those with similar tastes and leanings to continue their own explorations and crafts.
It has been my pleasure and privalage over the years to chat and spend time with a goodly number of older carvers who were kind enough to offer me instruction and tips that have greatly improved my carving abilities. needless to say most of them are long gone and it is now my turn to help and hint at ways to todays carvers that they may carry on in their turn.
