New Beginnings


I am constantly taking new photos of whatever I find in the great outdoors. After sorting through a day’s shoot, I post the ones that I think turned out best on the North Country Creations Facebook page. Any of these photos can be purchased as individual prints. They can also be purchased framed in one of my own hand-carved picture frames. These frames add an additional rustic look to the photograph. And of course, the picture frames can be purchased separately for you to use with your own photographs.

The Beginning

22 years ago this month I started what was to become North Country Creations. Originally I went by Kirby F. Neubert – Woodcarver and did it as a sideline business to my landscaping business.  In 2002 I sold that business and on October 10th of that year filed for a fictitious name in Pennsylvania to make my woodcarving business its own entity.

I learned my trade by simply watching Robbie Anderson carving in his shop a total of eight different days over the course of five or six months. The building shown here is the school of higher learning that I attended on Main Street in Sheffield, Pa.

The first item I ever carved was the gun cabinet shown here. It was made on commission for the sportsman’s club in Worthington, Pa. for a fund raising raffle. They paid me $750 for it and sold a limited number of 300 tickets at $5 each. That netted them an easy $750 and gave each ticket buyer a very good chance of winning compared to most other raffles.

Since then I have expanded my business to include carving a large variety of rustic furnishings and other items such as carving gunstocks, making garden ornaments and doing pyrography,  (wood burning). I also am in the process of adding selling my outdoor photographs to my business.

Many thanks to everyone who has supported me along this fantastic journey!
