Welcome to the Wooden Bird website.  

To learn a little about me and how I got into carving ducks, stop by the ABOUT page. 

I'll keep you updated on what I'm working on at On the bench.  

For a closer look at many of my birds, visit the gallery and click on any of the photos.  You can check out our Facebook Wooden Bird page at the Bird Blog and get tips on bird carving, if you are so inclined. 

If you are interested in one of my little wooden feathered friends, as a unique gift or would like to add to your collection, visit the Duck Shop or look at the gallery of SOLD ducks for ideas on a personalized duck just for you. Visit our  contact page if you have a question or comment or want to join our mailing list. 

Thanks for stopping by and for your interest in my work.
