WOOD CARVINGS BY CINDY CHINN

A few years back, I bought a pair of old church pews at an auction. They were a little weather beaten, but still in good enough condition to do 'something' with. After a while I found the time to start carving one. I used my old, cheap tools and slogged through it. I learned a lot about carving and tools and staining and four months later I had a special piece of furniture.

I still have this first pew for sale, but have since been commissioned to make some other carvings. Below are some projects I have completed and some that are in progress.

If you have any questions about my carvings or would like to talk about commissioning me to create something for you, please contact me.

I was commissioned to carve a panel for a custom built buffet. I offered the client 3 different designs and they decided with this panel showing a classic still life.
