Shelby Stanga net worth: Shelby Stanga is an American reality television star who has a net worth of $400 thousand. Shelby Stanga earned his net worth as the star of Ax Men, an American documentary reality television series which airs on the History Channel. Shelby Stanga moved to the swamps north of New Orleans when he was only nine years old. He has been a logger there for over 37 years. On the show he is often accompanied by his dog Wiley, his friends Earl and Bob and his cousin Jarvis. Shelby is part of the Swamp Man Logging Team on the third and fourth season of Ax Men reality show. Stanga and his crew work the summer logging season on the show. The Swamp Man Logging Team also appear in season five of the television reality series. Some of the logs he recovers have been sitting in the mud for many many years. Some of these trees range in age from 2,000 years old to 5,000 years old, and have absorbed minerals from the mud in a process that alters the appearance of the wood. This process results in a rainbow of colors — yellow, red, blue, green, purple and brown — and a very attractive product that Stanga sells to such furniture-makers as the Northshore's Keith Dufour.
