  • Stylized Eagle and Making New Project

    My 2 Daughters liked my last Stylized Eagle and Both wanted me to make them one . They wanted it so Bad that they want to buy it . Of course won't need to pay for it , 2 Birthdays are coming . The Youngest Daughter brought me 2 pieces of Walnut , 4" x 8" x 12" , all I needed to do supply the Man Power. The first 2 Pictures show the Piece that was removed when I cut it on the Band saw and the next project that I get from what would be Scrap . They were just to big to not find a way to use them and that's the Pattern that I came up with . Need to finish the 2nd one and then thinking of a Cane , Surprise ,Huh! Ha,Ha. I have 4 Stylized Eagle Pieces to do , 2 Pcs. I started in Mahogany before the Daughter brought the Walnut and the 2 Pieces from the Scrap Pieces . They will be for later , I'm seeing Wings in my Sleep . I made these 2 shorter to make them more Stable .

            A beautiful sculpture Merle, You are lucky you don’t have more kids.
            If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                Merle, what can be said about your works that have been said! This truly a memorizing piece. I could say something corny like "I bet your tools are even proud to have worked on this project", but I won't

                            Hello Merle splendid to meet you i love the lines on your pieces they have a great presence and flow.

                            Im a big fan of KISS also, i believe making simple things is hard and its easy to complicate things haha.
