    They are looking good. When I started woodcarving (1980) I only wanted to carve "working' style decoys.

    Lol Thanks for your post cut up. And thanks for reminding me I need to get back on track with the decoys. This Winter has been a busy one with non-carving issues.

    One of my granddaughters said "If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a horse." I don't know if her being blonde had anything to do with it or not. She was only about 6 or 7 at the time.
    Good looking ducks.

    Sappy you know as well as I practice makes perfect. After practicing for a while, you have a bunch of Christmas ornaments. People love 'em even though you know you can do better. We're our own worst critic.

    Very cool! I have always wanted to try a decoy. Yours look like "decoys" mine would look more like "de-toys".

    Nomad, I never thought I'd be carving decoys. But it was one of them things on my list. So, I started a half size decoy which is about 8 inches long by 3 inches wide. The head went easy and then I developed an inflamed tendon in my right ring finger called trigger finger. So I resorted to carving smaller ones. Eventually, I'll get back to the half size. But I don't think I'll go any bigger than that. Look forward to seeing some more miniature decoys. BTW--I saw a couple of Micro Mini Decoys on either Pinterest or Facebook. They are small enough to fit in a pill bottle. I don't think I'll go that small.

    That's pretty cool! I don't think I will be carving full size decoys any time soon but those miniatures look like fun.

    Thanks everybody! I kinda thought they looked like ducks but I wanted to make sure I wasn't quacking up.

    Good job Bob!,.. I like your idea of carving the small ones to see if you like it and to become familiar with that style of carving before you really jump in...

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck!

    Hi Bob
    I think you are off to a great start, I have carved a few ducks that size they are sort of nice, i entered a loon in a competition , it had to fit inside a champagne glass and float level for 30 seconds, it was a second prize ribbon winner

    Carving miniature Decoys

    It's been a while since I posted any of my activity but I have been busy exploring decoy duck carving. To get the hang of the anatomy and to see if I like it, I've carved a few small decoy ducks.

    Here's the ones I have in progress. They're about 3 inches long. Thanks for looking.
