  • Smoking Owl

    Midway thru Dec. Tasmandevil showed a collection of "Smoking men" in the Holiday Form. It peaked my curiosity, So I decided to try and do these for the Christmas gifts for my kids. It means carving six more, but that is nothing but time. This guy is my rough-out prototype. He is not ready for the paint dept. by any means, but I was just anxious to see if he would work without burning down, so far so go. Pam just came in and said I smell this clear out in the kitchen, Well we know that part is working and so far I haven't burned him down. Top of his head is warm, but not dangerously so.

    As always C&C welcome and encouraged.

    I'm going to have to set these aside. One of Pam's friend granddaughter is well and granny wants me to carve guardian angle for her, which will be my next post.

    What kind of wood are you using? Did you buy the cones for the smoking men or are you just using incense? Great idea for a gift item sure people will love them. .

        Very cool and a great job on the owl, Joe! Just make sure you keep the fire department's phone number on speed dial!

          Nice job JP. I've seen a few people I know with smoke coming out of their ears but I think they were just a little upset. Great idea to use an owl as your prototype.

                  Dang Joe, I thought owls were smarter than that. Looks cool::: Don,t burn the house down.
                  If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                        Quite an unusual one, Joe! I know you had fun with it. Does the cone sit on the wood, and are there vents for air flow?

                          Arthur,
                          No, the cones set on top of a small concrete spacer, which I glued to a steel 3/4" hole plug. I drilled a hole up between its legs to get air into the chamber. For the vents, I drilled holes into the ears into the body chamber. Included some pictures to help clarify what I'm saying. I also drilled 1-1/4" hole up into the body for a chamber for the cone.

                            Dude when I read "smoking owl" I got this vision of a pipe with an owl on it so you could say pass me the "hooter" your owl is very well carved and a great idea
