this piece was a small chunk of the famous Wye Oak from Maryland’s Eastern Shore
its historic value far exceeds its carved value but together …..a match made in heaven
the Idea of a beaver swimming just was too great to pass up and the slice of the wood just screamed Swimming Beaver
the piece is 100% hand carved and rubbed finished with a clear satin and hand rubbed sheen

The piece is incredible what a great idea for the use of the wood. You don’t get to use pieces of history like that to often.

Very cool wood and carving, and like you said being from that special Oak is what makes it an amazing prize.

My wife and I have seen this tree several times when we were on our way for weekends in Ocean City, MD. We used to live in MD in suburb of Washington, D.C. The Wye Oak is a very majestic tree and we have pictures of it as well. You are lucky to have a piece of this tree. Do you have more pieces or did the commission only dole out a certain amount to certain people? This is the second carving I have seen from the Wye Oak. If they gave it to you I can see why! You did the wood proud. I am putting you on my buddy list cause I love your works and don’t want to miss any.
