l awards at local, regional and national shows.  Each year he competes at the Ward World Wildfowl Carving Championships as it is important to Walt to
have his sculptures critiqued and evaluated by the world's best carvers.

Carvers Oasis is both a virtual and real place.  As a virtual space you will see wood carvings and wood sculptures.  Look at the realistically carved birds.  Walt carefully researches each subject before starting to carve.  Carvings are for sale.  Walt also takes commissions.

As a real space Carvers Oasis, located in Tempe, Arizona, hosts woodcarving seminars two or three times each year with nationally known instructors.  These seminars are normally related to bird carving or associated with the Desert Woodcarving Show which is held in Mesa, Arizona, in February of each year.  Walt occasionally teaches classes or gives private instruction.  To see a schedule of seminars, please check the Links page and
