Skanderna Wood Works has a strong interest in Norwegian Stave Church carving. Here is an example of carving by others at the Gol Stave Church in Minot, ND.
Welcome to Skanderna Wood Works. I have been an artist at heart since my youth and my medium has always been wood. I am proud of my connection to Scandinavian folk art. After many years of exploring woodworking and woodcarving, It is my passion to carve acanthus leaves and to put dragon and chip carving on items like ale bowls, boxes, and shelves. Funding I received through the North Dakota Council on the Arts to study and carve ale bowls has given me even more freedom of expression while preserving this important Norwegian folk art.
