MEANING: Dictionary: A formal expression of agreement to something, especially with the connotation that one does not really agree.

…or… as from The Princess Bride, “I Love You”

This carving was inspired by the 1973 novel by American writer William Goldman, an abridgment (or "the good parts version") of a longer work by S. Morgenstern. The book combines elements of comedy, adventure, fantasy, drama, romance and fairy tale. In 1987 book was adapted into a feature film that has developed a cult following…as inconceivable as that may sound… 


Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings.  Each carving begins as a 1 X 12 inch cedar board.  While we use power tools (Scroll Saw, Rotary shaft Tool, handheld detail sanders etc.), we use no laser’s, CNC machines or computer operated cutting machines.  All work is done with our hands and eyes… 

We cut the 2 dimensional blanks with scroll and jig saws (double-sized custom orders have to be cut with jigsaw). Carving is done with rotary shaft tools and disc grinders. The 80 grit sanding is the final phase of the carving process, removing the nicks and gouges from the carving tools, and finishes the shaping of the weave. The next 2 sandings with 120 then 220 grit finishes the smoothing and polishing. They are finished with Clear Danish Oil to seal the piece, bringing out the grain and the color.
