Oak Leaves Studio features the high relief woodcarving of master artist William Schnute. Much of his work is large architectural pieces, but there are often smaller works such as those pictured here on display in his studio-workshop.
Mr. Schnute works to order; each piece is designed in collaboration with the buyer. All his pieces are handmade; his larger pieces such as doors or wall-mounted sculptures may take several weeks, but a small box or carving may be finished in only a week or two, depending on prior scheduled commissions.
He carves pieces for outdoor use, such as commercial signs and gates, as well as a wide variety of creations only suitable for indoor use, such as beautifully detailed small sculptures and keepsake boxes.
William Schnute’s work must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. However, to give you an idea of his range and talent, you may want to look at the photos on Oak Leaves Studio’s website and the notebook of finished works at his studio.
