Terry is really excited about a carving class he'll be going to in August. He'll be gone 10 days for an intensive class where he'll be carving an owl. He's hoping to improve his carving and painting skills, to unlearn bad habits and form new ones. The instructor is a world class carver so he'll be coming home all pumped up to start carving I'm sure. It's a major sacrifice for him to go in August as that's his favorite time of year for fishing Silvers. We recently won a Travel Voucher from Hyundai and plan on using it to travel to the Ward World Carving Championship in Baltimore Maryland Spring of 2014. He will be able to take classes and attend seminars, I hope to explore historical sights in the area. I'll post pictures of all the fun stuff and new carvings I'm sure he's going to be inspired to create.
Welcome to Quack Shack Carvings! I, Rhonda,started this blog for Terry so that interested family and friends could see what he's working on and completed. He will be doing the carving I'll be blogging, computers are not Terry's thing.
Terry was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. His Dad worked on the Alaska Railroad so as a kid he was able to explore Alaska via the rail. His second favorite past-time is Fall Fishing for Silver Salmon on the Kenai River. We live on a lake; where we feed and enjoy watching the wildfowl. In 2006 he took a few duck carving classes and discovered a new passion. It has resulted in the pieces displayed here.
Terry's work schedule gives him the time he wants and needs to spend time carving. That's why in 2009 we spent the time and money to build a studio to work in. Pictures of it are posted in the blog.
Terry would like it if you became a follower of his carvings. Also click on any of the pictures to get a larger detailed version of the carving. Please leave comments as we would appreciate your feedback.
