After my friend and Master Carver David Landry

of Nokomis, Fla. passed away I decided to pick up the chainsaw and carry on his style. I have never tried carving before and will always regret not having taken more time to collaborate with David. Truth be told I regret not having spent more time hanging out with him especially at the end. The carvings I am working on now are inspired by his work and will always bear a token to his memory and a credit for his vision.

While not traditional and somewhat whimsical I always enjoyed these guys and their big grinning mugs. David used to paint his bright fun colors for now I am leaving them in a more natural state.

Welcome to TC Bohemiann! Very honorable and worthy undertaking.


Here's a dedication site to his works

Very talented!

He was a member here too. Tiki-Dave


He looked pretty young to leave us so soon.


Mahalo Bohemian!


A prayer for David's family!

Wow, thanks for the welcome. I actually had not realized that I had submitted the post yet and was surprised to see comments already. I first met David in 86 when I was selling his tiger and lion carvings in a gift shop I owned at the time in Venice, Florida. I am happy to see a plethora of Florida carvers in the mix.
