      Like the owl, I love the boldness of your finish. The colors are beautiful and really enhanced by the outlines and the wood grain shows through nicely. Great work Merle!

        I'm with Terry on this one! The boldness of your finish, the color and the wood grain all really stand out! You should have your entire family walking around on canes by now!
        Keep On Carvin'

            Hi Terry, I wanted to get a Finish Like a Piece of Furniture would be and this is what I came up with and liked it. The Eyes are B-B'S you wouldn't know it would you. I tried it and surprised myself .. Thanks Terry for your Encouraging Words . Merle

              Hi Bob, Ha,Ha, They are all just about covered now. I got 8 Great Grandsons and 1 on the way , don't know that I want to start on that List. For some reason I finish Carvings Faster now and I don't Rush on anything . Things seem to just fall together Quicker. I started the Stick this Morning and in no time I laid out For Mounting the Bird , Sanded , and have a Coat of BLO on it and Drying. 2 coats of PolyU and its done. It used to take 3 Weeks to do a Project ,this one will be a Week. If I keep this up I'll be running out of things to Carve. Ha,Ha. Thanks Bob , for your always welcome Comments. Merle

                  Will be putting the third coat of Poly U on today, Should be ready for pictures tomorrow or late this evening, not as classy as your.
