wood carvings

m. werneburg, 2000

I've been fiddling about with wood carving for several years and small woodworking projects. I've only ever made a couple of decent pieces, but I enjoy it as a hobby.

I've got a set of photos that can speak better to my carved items than any text. It features the small figurines and slightly larger projects I've been hacking at over the years.

Below are some other projects.

I’d see the publicity guy come on the set and I’d go hide in the rafters. The crew would be like, ‘I haven’t seen him.’ And then they’d leave and I’d go back to work.Because that’s what’s fun: the doing, not the talking.
