Wood is my favorite medium.  I carve bowls, spoons, magic wands, knife handles and sculpture from wood.  It’s all really an excuse to spend time with the material.  Never am I able to create something more beautiful than what the tree has already made, I can only draw attention to it.

I sell my work at farmers markets and craft fairs and the online gallery Nectarine.  If you see something here that you would like to purchase you may contact me at andobos@yahoo.com. I also do custom work including sculpture and carving knives and sheaths.

Below are a few examples of my work.
