Welcome to Carver of Wood N Ivory!
This is High Speed Carving at its finest. I carve with the use of chisels and gouges moving up into High Speed carving but never leaving my hand tools. I do believe some carvings are better done by chisel and gouge and some are better done by High Speed Drill . The High speed drill I use runs at 500,000 RPM.
I carve in different mediums, such as, Ivory, Wood and Eggs. The Ivory is Fossilized Walrus, Mammoth and Asian Pre-Banned Elephant Ivory.
Each piece takes on it’s own expression and personality making each piece in quality and craftsmanship totally separate from another.
The Egg Sculptures are quite delicate and exquisitely carved. Enjoy what you see here within these pages.
You will not find prices for my commissioned works. You can contact me through email or phone and I accept payments through PayPal.

Meet Cheryl Edstedt
Let me introduce myself, my name is Cheryl. I would like to show off my hobby that I enjoy doing to relax and get away from all the Humdrum of everyday living .I have reached across the oceans to show my carvings and they have been enjoyed from Canada to Greece.
The carvings you see here on these pages are an extension of myself to the world to enjoy and to treasure, their beauty as I see through my mind as I create “from my hands to your hearts” .
I moved From St Louis, MO to Springfield, MO in late 2004 with my husband Ray and my Collies. I worked for Ford Motor Co where I worked with my hands, I took up hand carving with chisels and gouges and progressed into high speed carving. The mediums I work with are Wood, Pre-Banned Ivory, Walrus Ivory, Mammoth Ivory also Egg Art Sculpturing, Bone, Antler.
When I am carving I love to be in my studio where I can carve and lose myself into the piece I am working on , I enjoy carving and letting the feeling work through my hands into the piece I am creating .
I truly believe,” If you can think it , You can create it .” Enjoy…
