David Sabol first began woodcarving at eight years old. In 1983, upon graduating from Southern Connecticut State College, he chose carving as his career. Today he is a highly respected carver, teacher, and author of several acclaimed woodcarving books. As a teacher of the wood carving arts, David conducts 12 to 15 seminars a year, attracting novice and advanced carvers from as far away as Europe and Canada. He has had numerous articles written about him in publications including Woodcarving Illustrated, and he has received many “Best of Show” awards at carving shows and wildlife art exhibitions.
David is a self-taught, traditional carver who uses knives, chisels, and oil stains to create unique caricatures, animals, flowers, birds, and human forms. Noted for their realistic,
detailed expressions David’s carvings are often identifiable at first sight by the keen eyes of collectors and woodcarving students.
