Don McColley

Don McColley was born in 1926 in Gladwin Michigan, and created his first wood carving from a wood crate traveling back to America after WWII in 1947. After returning home, Don married, started a family, and a lighting and sign company with his siblings. He dabbled in woodworking until he retired in 1980. Since then, he has created hundreds of carvings; including a 6 foot tall store Indian, replicas of guns and cannons, and decorative art carried here at On The Bay Customs!
