No Custom Orders for Now

Greetings my woodcarving friends!

This is just a quick note to let you know that I appreciate your interest in following along with me on my carving adventures and I hope you are all enjoying your own adventures in the world of woodcarving.  I hope you find the information here useful.

As most of you probably know, I am not a professional woodcarver or tool maker.  Even though I am passionate about both, they are only my hobbies, not my vocation.  But, they do give me something enjoyable to do on the weekends. 

I need to let everyone know that for the next couple of months, I will be preparing for a professional licensing examination that is going to take up the majority of my free time.  Unfortunately, I will not have much time to spend out in my workshop and, consequently, I will not be taking any new custom knife or palm tool orders for the time being.  I anticipate restoring my custom tools pages upon completion of my examination and hope you will not be too disappointed in having to wait for a few weeks to place your orders.  Everything should be back up by mid April and I look forward to working with you to meet your carving needs.

Thanks again for your interest in The Old Stump, and wish me luck on the test!



  1. Brandt, I hope you get back to carving one day because the only one I have seen better than you is Lynn Doughty and you were quickly closing the gap. Don't forget about Billy the Kid. Best of luck to you my friend. Charlie
