Thank you for your interest in KÄRV.
My name is Kenney Skonieczny and I am the woodworker and artist behind KÄRV.
I have spent 30+ years in metalworking and manufacturing from a manual machinist in the ’70’s to the world of CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) machinery … leading up to the start up of my CNC software company, Kentech Inc., in 1986. Today Kentech Inc. is still creating innovative and pioneering CNC and machine shop software used by thousands of machinists and machine shops around the world.
In 2017, I decided to take my talents to woodworking and started the KÄRV workshop. In the shop I combine the technology of CNC with hand craftsmanship to create unique, one-of-a-kind wooden inspirations. All the designs showcased on this website are my own designs and creations, crafted personally in my KÄRV workshop. through KÄRV I provide commission pieces as well as off-the-shelf items to provide my clients with the perfect design.
In 2019, I decided to try my hand at clay sculpting and immediately fell in love with the texture and freedom the clay provided. Through this journey I hope to combine my hand carving techniques with clay sculpting techniques … and even combine the mediums … to create some unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.
I invite you to browse the KÄRV Gallery and our OnLine Store … or contact me directly with your specific request or design. I look forward to an opportunity to provide you with that perfect keepsake box, timepiece, commemorative plaque or unique wooden inspiration.
