What is a wood duck?What is a wood duck?

A Wood Duck is an individually hand-crafted golf and duck hunting inspired collectables that combines two of Artist, Jim Kasmarek’s passions. Our individually hand-crafted Wood Ducks are created by combining a vintage wooden driver gold club with a hand-carved wooden duck head. The duck head is carved from basswood, painted with an oil-based stain and fitted with real glass eyes. The head and club are carefully paired to create a one-of-a-kind decoy replica. This is the perfect gift for any sportsman or golf enthusiast!

About the process

At Wood Duck Nation, we intentionally leave the old wood drivers “as is” to maintain their vintage integrity. Our wide variety of persimmon and laminated woods give a uniqueness to each of the wood ducks. Since wood headed drivers have been replaced by metal head drivers, all of our club heads can be considered vintage. However, some club heads are more vintage than others. Club ages range from the 1920s to the 1970s. When expertly combined with the correct duck species, each Wood Duck has it’s own personality and character!

Our story Meet the artist - Jim

Every round of golf and every duck hunt have a story with a memory attached to it. Our hand-crafted Wood Ducks are a celebration of those moments.

Artist Jim Kasmarek resides in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Jim is an avid waterfowler and his father was an outstanding golfer, so he combined his love of both to create “Wood Ducks.”  Upcycling vintage golf clubs has been a passion of his since 2009. Each of Jim’s creations are filled with personality and life experience. Every piece is entirely unique. Friendships, memories, beauty, and character define this exclusive art forms.

Before becoming an artist, Jim was a teacher of philosophy, anthropology and history, published author, high school basketball coach, and musician. Jim has been married for 33 years and has four grown children and a Labrador named Sami Jo.
