Carved Wood Ornament

Click here for a list of carvers of wood and stone ornament

Hand-carved wood is one of the most ancient forms of ornament, and the allure and charm of carved wood surfaces are, if anything, stronger than ever in our world of mass-produced sameness.

This online list provides a good cross-section of the wood carvings market (and includes stone carvers as well). You'll find sources of inexpensive machine-made carvings, along with molded compo and polymer-based reproductions that, especially when painted, replicate the look of more expensive hand carvings.

You'll also find custom carvers who will create one-of-a-kind wood art in the form of mantels, newels, furniture and other types of architectural ornament.
