        Certainly nice variations, Tom. Especially like the one on the tree stump. Of course, my wife loves all of them.

          I too had fun carving Doug's owl. Carved 3 with graduation caps for my 2 nephew's and a niece that graduated college this year. IMG_20190804_170415608.jpgIMG_20190804_170336560.jpg

                Very nice carving, Dash. Good idea for the grad caps.

                  Thanks guys! I'm hoping they like them enough to hang onto them. Thank you Tom for showing me how to do their eyes. My first three (1st pic) don't look near as good. I learn alot from you veteran Carver's.

                      I was inspired after seeing the video to give it a try with the chainsaw. Here is my version. It was made from a 7"x7"x9" block I milled and had around. I had to change a few cuts because of the saw. I already learned what I would do different on the next, but what a fun small carve. Thanks again Rob for the post.

                          Nicely done, Bob. Doug has created a whole following on those owls, and figure we will need a 12 step recovery program to remove the addiction. I'm still carving them and moving up to 1.25 and 1.5-inch ones. I also have some nice butternut and might give that a try. Lots of fun.

                          Your adaptation is excellent...

                            I would have to agree with you Bill. I did another yesterday. I think I'm hooked. LOL

                              The basswoods are pearl and black, burned, slight gold, and the last one slight silver is the colonial cypress. These are fun to make. I know I'll be making more in-between projects

                                Very nice Shawna and I and my wife really like the cypress. Hard to carve? Of course, the others are nicely done, but the cypress has excellent color.

                                Addictive? Yeah, I'm up to number 15...and 3 butternut ones.
