  • Eagle for the Preacher

    IMG_0002.JPGIMG_0003.JPGIMG_0004.JPG 4 " x 3" x 2" , Basswood . Hard part is done , installed his Eyes this afternoon , ( Putty is still wet ) . Now waiting for my Diamond Willow Sticks to come . This Guy surprised me on the way it turned out , might be hard to let go . This Pattern is by Pat Mikula Moore , in the Spring issue 2006 . This Pattern is the best I have used and always with good results . Don't even know if she is still carving , but her Pattern lives on with me . This is as far as I can go till my Sticks arrive . Will ‚Äč the finished Stick. Merle

    OH YA, just super, great job. Will be well accepted. It is a fine job all the way around, but your work on the feathers is just outstanding.

      Hi Joe , It took a lot of Thought and Concentration on the Feathers , didn't want to make them look like Soldiers all even . Random is difficult for me . Thanks Joe Always appreciate your kind words. Merle

                Excellent carving with great detail...obviously a winner. Might be difficult to part with that one.

                  Great job Merle. I agree that it is a great pattern and instructions to work with.

                    Wow, Merle! Another magnificent topper! It is a great pattern and the preacher will surely cherish it. What kind of putty do you use to set the eyes?
