Northwoods Carvings

Marc Degagne
and Claire Degagne

Coldwater, Ontario, Canada


I am a master carver, completely self taught. I began carving as a young boy on my parents farm in northern Ontario. I started by making spouts and axe handles for our maple syrup business and my passion for wood and carving grew from there. It wasn't long before I was carving the woodland creatures that surrounded me and it has now turned into a life long passion and full time business. I sell my work online, at numerous gift shows, and in fine galleries and shops. My wife Claire does the painting and mounting, shipping and computer work.

Why We’re One of a Kind

We love the One of a KInd Shoe. It gives us an opportunity to meet with a wide variety of people who appreciate the time and skill that goes into making a unique handmade product. The show is beautiful and lively and a wonderful and assures a great time to vendors and shoppers alike.

Primary Materials

I carve in local hardwood, softwood and burls. Most of my wood is purchased from local arborists and is reclaimed wood from trees that has to be taken down. My bases are burls, hardwood , driftwood, and limestone from a nearby lake bed.

Shipping Policy

I can ship anywhere in the world. Shipping within Canada takes 2-4 business days. To the USA 47 business days and 10-15 business days for overseas.
