Welcome to the Master Decoy Carver Site

We hope these pages will be a source of information and inspiration for anyone interested in decoys, collecting, folk art, and historic crafts.

From the hobbyist to those seeking to start their own career as a decoy carver.

You're invited to tour Gary's workshop, see detailed views of decoys - contemporary and antique - painted and unpainted - and learn how a practiced pastime can lead to a profitable carving career.

It's fun to do. You just cut away all the wood
that isn't duck
