A New England legend.

Meet Michael McCarthy.

Owner and Master Craftsman at Yankee Woodcarvers

Meet our master carver:

A Scholastic Art winner in penmanship, oil and water color.

A true Renaissance Man, Mike worked as a carpenter, architect, mason, landscaper, and even as a lobsterman before settling down to his roots and opening Yankee Woodcarvers in 1996.

The McCarthy family has been a local treasure for decades. Mike McCarthy apprenticed under his father and Master Woodcarver, Paul McCarthy when he was 16 years old.

Now, 35 years later, he has carved over 10,000 pieces for residential and commercial projects alike.

Will yours be his next? We certainly hope so.
