  • Walnut Knot Eagle

    Another piece of the Walnut Knot that the other Eagle was made from . 8" x6"x 4' , Finished with Poly U and Feed-n-Wax . I think this one shows the Grain better than the last one . Both Beautiful Pieces of Wood . Merle IMG_0001.JPGIMG_0002.JPGIMG_0003.JPGIMG_0005.JPGIMG_0007.JPG

      You are becoming the eagle master Merle. He looks fantastic. Base looks great too.
      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

        What was your obtain rank in Boy Scouts? Merle this is such a fine job and the detail in so extraordinary, that your pictures could be used as a pattern for others wishing to carve a fine eagle.

          Hi Ed , This started out as 1 piece but their was to much Detailing on the Bottom so I changed the Base . I thought more Detailing on this one would show off the Grain better , it looks like Dark Marble . Thanks for your Kind Words . Merle

            Hi Tom , The Base fits Exactly with the Top . I cut it off under the Feathers then came up with this Design and by not disturbing the Cut area and Finishing the Base , then when time to mount the 2 together it fit Perfectly , Dumb Luck . Was all done by Power , my Tools wouldn't touch it . Eyes are Mahogany . I guess when you do what you like to do and the Subject you put a little more Effort into it . Thanks Tom for your Always Welcome Words . Merle

              Hi Joe , was never a Boy Scout . Sure made a Lot of Dirt Grinding on this Guy . This Wood is Hard , Heavy , and Beautiful , still have some pieces yet , but need a Rest from this Wood . If anyone thinks the Pictures could help them carve an Eagle they are Welcome to use them . Thanks Joe for your always Encouraging Words , Appreciated . Merle
