The Wooden Bird © 2019

Canvasback Drake Head on Birch Base 2019

Lifesize "Can" head on live edge cherry base. Completely detailed and woodburned feathers. Hand-carved and painted, one-of-a-kind piece. 5.5" high on base. $225 US

Mini Canada Goose 1982

A fully detailed mini honker from my vintage collection. Textured and wood burned throughout, Basswood block acrylic paint. 9 x 3.5 x 5. This is a hand carved one-of-a-kind piece. $300. US 

Red Breasted Merganser Hen 2019

This merganser hen was a departure from my normally highly textured and wood burned decorative birds. I wanted to try establishing detail and feather softness with just layers of acrylic paint.  Main feather groups are carved but most detail is created with the paint. This "smoothie" is approximately 13" long and is acrylic on cedar and basswood.  Hen won 2nd best of species and 2nd best sea duck at 2019 Wisconsin Waterfowl association show.   $600 US

Common Loon Head on Cherry Base 2019

Lifesize calling loon head on Live edge cherry base. Completely detailed and woodburned feathers. Iridescent violet and green can be seen in the otherwise "black" head.  Hand-carved and painted, one-of-a-kind piece. 9.5" high on base. $325 US

The Duck Shop -- The perfect gift for the collector or the person who has everything!!

I currently have a very limited selection of available birds. Good news bad news, most of my ducks have been sold and I have been busy with commission work. All of my birds are hand-carved and painted, signed one-of-a-kind originals. Check out our reviews and feedback page. Prices vary based on the amount of work involved and the finished quality of the bird. If you have any questions or would like more detailed info or pictures please connect with us using the contact page. I would be happy to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.


We also welcome the opportunity to create a piece just for you.  I enjoy commissions because I keep in contact with the client and send pictures throughout the process. It's like we are working on the piece together. If you would be interested in a piece made just for you or a family member, please contact me. I only produce about 1-2 ducks per month. So there is a lead time if you are thinking about a specific date.


For Holiday gifts, I suggest a Commission Duck gift certificate. It will describe the bird you are giving, and the estimated date of arrival as well as describing the fun process of creating a bird together!  I'll also send you a Wooden Bird coffee mug as a stocking stuffer with your certificate.  For ideas on a duck, you might like check out the SOLD page.
