Thank you for coming to visit woodbedoodle.com, Home of Ogrsculpting Ltd.

Wood is something we see every day, whether it is part of something structural, of practical use, or for decorative purposes – the list goes on.  Wood is one of our oldest used materials and comes in all sorts of colours, shapes and densities.  Old and new wood can be used alike and I don’t like wasting any pieces that many would call scrap.  Wood has a natural beauty, an ever changing appearance along its grain and it’s this that draws me to study it, to be tested by it and to work with it.

I am Oliver Richardson.  Since 2012 I’ve been teaching myself wood carving in my spare time. I am based in the beautiful county of Durham in the North East of England.

I’ve been making commission pieces for friends and family over the years to gain practice in both wood carving and wood work in order to hopefully turn my hobby into a career
