Wood Carvings In Roebuck Springs, AL: A Photo From The Field

I was in the Roebuck Springs area of Birmingham, AL last week, which is located in the northeastern section of Jefferson County.  While taking comparable photos I drove past this wood carving that someone had made in their front yard.  The tree trunk was still growing up out of the ground and the carving had been made to the upper half of the trunk.  I am not that talented when it comes to things like this so when I see other people’s work it really impresses me.  I am sure it took a while to finish this intricate carving.  It makes me wish I could be this creative.  What do you think of it?

  1. This was done by the same gentleman who carved an enormous lion from another tree trunk located behind the St. Barnabas Catholic Church on 1st Ave and 80th. He did another of dragonflys in the front yard of a house on 4th Ave South just past 85th. Incredible artist. BTW all these houses are on the edge of Roebuck Springs.

    • Thanks for sharing. When I saw these carvings I thought they were amazing. You’re right, they are neary Roebuck Springs. Whenever I am in the area I will try to look for the lion and dragonfly.

      • The artist name is Andy Cummings. I’m so glad to see his work getting some attention and also glad to hear that I’m not the only person who appreciates it. LOL Have a good day!

  2. That is pretty impressive. I wonder how long it took to carve? And I wonder how much value it adds to a house? 🙂

  3. One of my goals in life is to enter a carving contest with my chainsaw. 🙂 No, seriously, this is really impressive. I have dabbled in wood work, but have never accomplished anything remotely close to that level of detail or skill. Thanks for sharing.

    • I’m partial to ice carving myself but can’t stand the cold; therein lies the problem. I too am kidding, but I really enjoy watching people as they are in the process of doing these intricate carvings. Wish I was that talented.
