Appletree Creations are original hand carved farm animals, and some wildlife. Wood is white pine, some added dowels & hardwood. Our standard is farm animals, with some related wildlife. Occasionally fish, whales, loons, and ducks. This is a work of love, a way to develop an original concept of an animal and improve on patience. it can be fun at times, and a challenge to put an idea on paper, design it, develop a pattern, and work the piece to a point of being acceptable (is perfect). It may take two or three times through to create the correct "look", the proof is in the finished product.
