Another bird flies out of the workshop!

The majestic white swan calmly glides across the blue waters of a smooth reed filled lake.  Summer's coming and the swans are heading north to their feeding grounds.  Catch this one quickly before it flies away!

The swan is carved from Pine with a Padauk and Walnut beak.  The water from Denim Pine, that's the Pine tree which was infested with the Pine Beetle.  If you look long and hard at the lumber store you may find some that has not been shipped to Asia.

A Great Blue Heron flies out of the workshop!

Look at this beautiful Great Blue Heron! I created one about 5 years ago and it dissappeared quite quickly. It flew off to Ontario.  Very few people got to see it up close, so I decided to make another one.  I used Western Red Cedar for most of the Heron, enhanced by Pine and Walnut.  The reeds in the pond are Poplar, which has a greenish hue.

WOW I can't believe what I'm finding in the workshop!

Lots of new items coming out of the workshop this week. This Tool Clock emerged from all the little pieces I found while cleaning up. It now reminds me when to take my lunch break!!
