Northwest Coast Wood Carvings

Gabriel was trained in totem pole carving on the Musqueam reserve in Canada by master carver Richard Campbell.  Gabriel spent years diligently learning the craft of carving from Richard before he made a conscience decision to develop his talents in the craft of Judaica and Synagogue furnishings. Still today, Gabriel continues to employ many of the unique carving techniques that he learned on the reservation, such as the use of straight and curved blade knives and adzes, and adapted these techniques to detail work and furniture making. All Northwest coastal-style wood carvings are hand carved using traditional tools from cross cut old growth yellow cedar, hand painted and finished.

Custom projects are processed individually. Please contact us with as much information as you have, pictures, measurements, style, etc. We will then produce for you a detailed three dimensional computer rendering of the proposed furnishings. The renderings will help you, your committee, and donors actualize how the project will look in your space. It can also help greatly to raise additional funds and make your project a reality. We continue to revise the sketches according to your feedback until you are fully satisfied with the design and budget before we begin production.

Additional Information

Each product is crafted individually, by hand, with attention to detail. Our clients appreciate the work and service we provide. We follow all plans and requests down to scale and our clients delighted by the products they receive. In order for us to deliver the best quality product, we need to make decisions regarding some details during production. You are likely not going to receive the exact product in the photograph on the website. Because of the organic nature of other custom projects, such as carving or glass work, there is no way in describing the exact details in rendering in advance. The only decisions that we make are those that we believe will make the product either of higher quality, stronger, more functional, or aesthetically pleasing. As a client of any craftsman you are putting your confidence in their decisions.
