Calvo Studio

David Calvo first picked up woodcarving as a college student at the University of Massachusetts more than 30 years ago. Since then, he's consistently showcased his skills at international woodworking trade shows, on nationally televised PBS programs such as The Woodwright's Shop and American Woodshop, and in woodworking-centric magazines, including Popular Woodworking and Woodshop News. David's studio splits its time between contemporary and classical styles, and its work—ranging from ornaments and furniture to custom-carved doors and fine art reliefs—has inhabited an impressive lineup of venues, including the Statue of Liberty Museum and Harvard University's renowned Sanders Theatre. Students hoping to learn the woodcarving craft can have David and his staff whittle skills and tips into their brains during a variety of classes, seminars, and multiday workshops offered at the studio.
