Carvings for Lodge, Cabin and the Kids

Northwoods Creations began with a chunk of scrap-wood and a desire to "make something" to capture a memory of a wolf encounter in the Northwoods. I offer artistic "impressions" of some of my favorite inhabitants of the wild places to decorate lodge, cabin or the kids room.

"It takes great courage to see the world in all its tainted glory and yet to still love it" - Oscar Wilde


The world has become so much more complex since Oscar Wilde expressed this sentiment in the late 1800's. "The taint" of trials, sometimes of massive proportions, invades our lives. I find courage when I am able to venture into open spaces, marvel at its beauty, gaze heavenward and know that the One who spoke such marvels into existence also created me, and will never leave me nor forsake me. I pray you find solace by being mindful of the good things, the marvelous things, the beautiful things that are unmoved by earthly travails, and perhaps in doing so, find yourself gazing heavenward comforted and encouraged by the lovingkindness and mercy of our Creator.
