David Gorey Wood Carving

Welcome to DG Carving. I am a carver and sculptor of wood for art and design, based on Main Street, Fethard, Co. Tipperary. I have worked on commission pieces in conjunction with architects, designers, antique dealers, and private individuals. In the past I have hand-carved statues, religious figures, presentation and corporate gifts, illustrated wall panels, shopfronts and corbells, fireplaces and overmantels, antique restoration pieces and reproductions.

Samples of my work can be seen at the Bru Brou heritage centre Cashel where I sculpted a life size statue of Brian Brou from elm. Some historical heads and mythological scenes that were carved in teak are also on display in Bru Boru. In Collins Army Barracks, Cork a life size statue of Michael Collins is on display which I carved from cedar wood. Historical panels and corporate gifts carved in beech can be seen on display in the Excel Centre Tipperary. I have also reproduced antique fireplaces, chairs, tables, clocks etc.

I am happy to meet with you and discuss your personal ideas and requirements and share my wealth of experience to develop your individual designs. All works are finished to a high standard and delivered and installed where necessary.

Please take a moment to have a look through my photos galleries to see examples of my work.
