The Fantastic Reality of Steve and Jacque Tunturi
The Fantastic Reality of Steve and Jacque Tunturi

The amusing Harley Dragonson by Steve Tunturi.Since 1982, Waldport has been home to a colorful shop where fantasy comes alive in the woodwork of Steve Tunturi. Steve painstakingly hand carves wizards, dragons and many other creations, so no two are exactly alike. His wife of 33 years, Jacque, creates the airbrushed, blended colors that enhance Steve's work.

Whittler's Workshop has become a destination for collectors of his wood sculptures and some cast resin limited edition reproductions. Steve is not just a Master Woodcarver. He also has an "over the top" imagination which results in works that can amuse you and invite you to see where his imagination will take him next. His dragons are whimsical and include dragon sweethearts, Harley Dragonson on a motorcycle and can also be useful, serving as bookends or pencil holders.

Steve's wizards can be similarly useful and would look great on a desk or bookcase. Whittler's Workshop also offers a line of firefighter sculptures, incense burners, bottle stoppers and some one-of-a-kind woodcarvings. Those with a sense of humor will enjoy the "Oddities." The one-of-a-kind sculpture Sorceress and Unicorn by Steve Tunturi.

The Tunturis have a new website where collectors can browse his work in a gallery setting and make purchases online. The website is located at
