What a crazy world we all suddenly live in, right? It’s not easy for me to be idle. I have to be doing something all the time, and preferably something creative. I’m seeing on the CarveWright community pages, the Carvaholics and the Forum, that I am not alone. Looks like many CarveWright users are finding […]

Hi, this is Connie.  I am the voice on the phones at CarveWright when you call and, as you would expect, I spend most of my time at work in front of my computer. In between answering customer service calls, I like to play with the CarveWright Designer software and try to create patterns based […]

As most CarveWright customers know, for the past 14 years, our products have been manufactured in China. With the coronavirus outbreak, our Chinese manufacturing line was essentially shut down.

Born and raised a Western Kansas farm boy, Darren Ehrlich learned at an early age about hard work, duty, creativity and dedication.  He learned to build what he needed and if it didn’t work, he learned how to fix it. He was first introduced to woodworking in Junior High, but due to lack of a […]

CarveWright Embossed Leather Chair Restoration

There was this set of six antique gothic chairs from the late 1700’s that we found in the far back of an antique store, almost as if they were embarrassed of them. They were worm eaten and the leather seats were rotting away, but, if restored, they would be perfect for the Lovchik library. Restoring […]

Last year, for our Christmas project, I made a Red Christmas Truck decoration. It was complete with a pinecone tree, lights, and all the vintage nostalgia you could ask for. I was delighted to see so many other CarveWright users making the project and wondered, “What could we make this year to top it?”. Well, […]

When I was a kid, and first demonstrating some artistic talent, my mother asked me to do some drawings for a children’s book she had written. I was familiar with the book, as she had read it to me when I was younger, and I agreed, it needed pictures. Excited, I set to work on […]

His latest is this steampunk clepsydra (“water thief”) clock. It works by steadily filling a chamber with water, and then a siphon periodically drains it. This […]
