Owl made from Tupelo
How long does it usually take you to complete something like this?
The owl took close to 100 hours. I decided when doing the feathers to both stone them and burn them. It makes them look softer. I hope to do this with the woodcock also.Most of my carvings have at least 50 hour in them.
absolutely lovely work! I've gotten a chance to work with screech owls and this looks so amazingly lifelike nice job and congrats on the DD!
This is the best picture I've seen of this bird. It's hard to appriciate the work if we can't really see it.
