Location: Anaheim, CA
Website: www.woodcarver4u.com

I have over 30 years of experience in woodcarving
Born in the ancient Azerbaijan city of Baku in the former Soviet Union. I began my woodcarving career in 1978 at the Azerbaijan College of Fine Art.
Also continued formal schooling at the University of
Architecture in Baku, where studied various other styles of woodworking,
Including Gothic, Rococo, Empire and Classicism.
While at the University, I began working at the Special
Scientific Restoration Workshop, where helped restore antique museum
furniture dating to the 15th century and also took part in the restoration
of the Old Town of Baku City, where I designed and carved elaborate doors and windows for buildings in the city, which dates to the 12th Century.
Took top awards at that year in International Woodcarvers Congress, repeated the two following years. Was the Grand Prize Winner of the 1996 and 1999 Create-A-Clock Contest in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Also took first place in “Design in Wood”, in San Diego, CA. Best of Show in “Artistry in Wood” 2007 Dayton OH,
Best of show in Artisan Guild Gallery, MO in 2008….
Perhaps greatest honor yet came during the Pope John Paul II historic visit to St. Louis in 1999. I was asked by the Archdiocese of St. Louis to help restore pieces in the Archbishop’s residence in preparation for the Pope’s visit. I expertly fulfilled this request and also most generously gifted a magnificent walnut hand-carved chair to the Archbishop’s Residence for the Holy Father’s visit.
I and my work have been featured on HGTV (Modern Masters),
Cable Vision, KSDK, as well as in a number of local and national newspaper
and magazine articles, including St. Louis Magazine (Nov. 1998 and Feb.
2006), St. Louis at Home (Nov. 2005) St.Louis Business Journal
(Jan., 2010)

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks. That is a very interresting background in wood carving. You will get a lot of questions on how-to about wood carving.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty

I can’t get over your work. It is simply stunning…...... I didn’t have time to read all your post on this page, but I will be back to take a look. If there were ever a teacher to learn from it definitely would be you.
