Wooden Feather Carvings

Wooden Feather Carvings have been Steve’s passion since 1997. I started carving ½ size ducks and a master carver told me to remember that “those birds are carved 1 feather at a time.” So, I decided to try to carve one feather. I began by carving turkey feathers.

Old oak barn board seemed like a natural fit to display them. Then I added oak and maple leaves, mushrooms, arrowheads and shotgun shells. Mother Nature is full of feathers so I started doing speculum feathers from the puddle ducks and different game birds soon followed. Now I carve the feathers of all the game birds, ducks all the species of turkeys, song birds, hawks, owls, and my favorite the immature Golden Eagle. Since many of these feathers are illegal to possess a wooden carving is a great way to enjoy their beauty. I also began carving elk and whitetail deer antlers to use as gun racks.

One of a kind

I carve one of a kind original custom pieces to display in your home, cabin, office or to give as a gift to a special friend. Your imagination is your only boundary of what I will carve for you. Each custom carving is numbered on the back and includes a “Signature Oak Leaf” which contains the initials of the person I am carving for. It also contain a “Note of Authenticity” which is a personal note from me and or the person who is giving the piece as a gift, the name of the carving and an original pen and ink drawing, with the number of the carving and my signature. Most of the pieces I carve in a “custom piece” are from basswood. I also use tupelo occasionally.

I am a “Juried Member” with Best of Missouri Hands an artisans group here in Missouri.

Take a look around my web site and you will be amazed at the realism and detail of my wooden feathers. If you have an idea and don’t see it on the web site then please contact me. I also do custom work.
