Offering one-of-a-kind, hand carved duck decoys in a variety of species and profiles. Each decoy is uniquely carved and meticulously finished the old fashioned way, by hand.
About me: I was born in 1955 and raised in Port Colborne, Ontario. After graduating from high school and spending six years in the work force, I was persuaded by my older brother to pursue my artistic talents. In 1980, I moved to Toronto where I started carving full-time. After three years, I moved back to the Port Colborne area where I presently have my woodcarving business.
Our decoys are categorized by styles and can be viewed by clicking on the gallery buttons to the left. To place an order, simply email us and we will reserve your carving. Inquiries are welcome and will be responded to promptly.
Although I've been approached by many people to expand my wood carving business, I've always chosen to keep it a small 'mom & pop' operation with no regrets. This way, every decoy and bird in flight is individually carved... not an assembly line mass-produced product.
The birds are carved from Canadian White Pine and finished with semi-transparent stains which allow the natural grain and warmth of the wood to show through. They are then sealed and sprayed with a water based finish. Eyes are inserted and each piece is signed and dated.
