What are "larger items?" 60' totem poles?
Many of my carvings are in the 30" to 72" length. Western red cedar, some birch.
I don't consider those very large. I park them outside, if they sell, they sell.
I can pack and ship without too much difficulty.
There are several of us in the village, all making different things.
Basically shuttle people off to the other guy';s place, depending on their interests.
Weather here can be so brutal that we carve in the winters and market in the summers, among other things ( I grow grapes).
