Wood Carving / Restoration

This frame was carved my my great grandfather, John Staehli, (my namesake). I have taken up his original wood carving tools (still in the family) and the task of repairing this old piece which has been lying around in pieces as long as I can remember. I wanted to get it repaired without any traces of putty work and have fitted walnut in place of every missing piece. This is a very intricate and fragile piece and I suspect it was one of his graduate projects from the Bern Switzerland school of wood carving, incorporating all the challenges of wildlife, feathers, sticks and leaves and ribbons, with lots of deep undercutting and relief. I have noted no joints in the original and believe this was carved from a single piece of wood. Wiid Carving
