  • New Simple Owls

    I don't know how many of you follow Doug Linker on Instagram or YouTube but he makes lots of really terrific wood carving videos for beginners with easy to do projects that are lots of fun. Doug recently came out with a video on carving a simple, fast and easy owl that's so much fun to carve that it's addictive. Here are a few that I carved before I had to force myself to stop and go on to carve something else.

        Great job Bob. Now matter what color you paint them, they look cool.
        If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

            Nice ones there, Bob. I'm a follower of Doug's work and love his simplicity in making nice and appealing carving projects. I'm currently now doing his owls after I finished several "Indians in a Blanket." WCI should recruit him for permissions to do some of his wonderful projects.

            Your renditions of his owls are great...thanks for posting.

                    I have carved or I have tried to carve just about everything Doug has posted although I have yet to get to the owls. Doug did post an interesting video yesterday in which he made it clear that although he hoped people like his carving videos, they are not made or designed to be tutorials. I think that this is important to point out to new carvers which may become frustrated by Doug's presentation. Where a more experienced carver can sort of fill in the blanks, a new carver may fine it hard understanding certain cuts or the reason for those cuts.

                      I saw that video, Eddy, and my take was some of his carvings are tutorials and the owl falls into that category. He does do some carvings for entertainment and those are not tutorials.

                      I found the owl a very detailed video, and it was as good a tutorial as any. Yes, some of his carvings do not have much detail to carve them but find them entertaining nevertheless.

                          Give them a try and I found them fun and addictive. Finished up 22 and will post pictures of some in a few some gnomes and Indians in a Blanket...seems folks like them.

                            I can already imagine a Christmas tree hung with a coulpe dozen of those owls. Cheerful paint, too.
