This Taiwanese Carpenter Makes Charming Cartoonish Wood Sculptures

The works of Taiwanese carpenter Jui-Lin Yen will definitely make you fall in love with woodworking. Yen creates charming wood sculptures that look like they came straight from a cartoon.

Yen’s sculptures are all hand-carved and highly detailed with smooth finishing. Most of his recent works are focused on unusual facial expressions, which make his pieces quite unique.

He initially started creating hand-carved wood sculptures as gifts for his children. However, people soon began taking an interest in his work, and he decided to offer them for sale.

Although these sculptures can serve as great decoration pieces, they also have their functional side as they can be installed on walls and used as hangers for clothes and pieces.

Check out some of Yen’s works below.
