Just Looking

These geese are carved from basswood. I liked them carved in bark a lot better, because of the grain of the bark. There is just a natural finish on the birds and the base. A fun part was how to arrange the birds on the base. They looked good in several ways. They are screwed in so they can be turned for a different look.

This goose is carved out of cottonwood bark. The part showing bark at the feet was a friendly accident and shouldn't be carved out. It's 6 inches long and two and one half inches tall. I have carved this goose and a mate out of basswood. It's in the process of a finish and base.

Young carver

            With help and a little guidance my nephew Carson carved a little owl. He used a v-tool at an angle to carve the feathers. They stood out a little and it looked cool. Carson did a great job.
