Carved Santas Done The Old Fashioned Way
(Update: more carved Santas will be posted the week of 11/24/14 so please check back!)
Frank Ebersold’s carved Santa designs are carved chip by chip using old style hand sharpened tools with carving methods that have not changed much over time. The process is time consuming but the results are rewarding. On the workbench below, you can see some freshly painted ornaments as well as a newly carved Santa patiently waiting for paint in the background. All of the finishing work on the carved Santas is done throughout the year in the carving studio by hand.
There are some interesting designs in the works from carved weathervanes and whirlygigs to a new style carved ornament for 2013- check the news at the top of this page for more pictures right from the workbench.
