No completely in June but i finally hollowed and keeled the pin and got em all sealed up. I also carved a mussell the other day, going to plan out an eider with it.

I also cut down a small red cedar that's been dead for years to see what i could salvage. Pink dust everywhere!

And the pin.
Andy tell's me to go gring some cork i'll feel better.

As always... the bird and the keel are very SWEEEET.

Oh wait, WWW.GUAHOG.ORG says that I should say this when speaking to a Rhode Islander, they are "WIKKIT SWEEEET"!!!!!

Now if only I can work your Rhode Island catchphrase, "No school Fosta-Glosta", into a conversation I would be a happy man :D :D :D :D

For those of you who see Mike at shows you may want to consult this RI website so you can understand him. We usually just have him sit in the corner and keep quiet ...but that doesn't work for long ;D ;D ;D

if you hot glue your bottom board you won't rip chunks out of your cork!

Mike nicely done, I like the custom keel and mussel.

1/4th of the order sitting here. tomorrow some white and raw umber, blue eye ring and bill painted. Day after a little fine lining and then ten will be completed out of twenty five. two more sitting in base coats and plan on carving four more tonight and get them primed tomorrow. busy, busy.

Tom, are you using an airbrush on the doves? That is going to be a real nice spread.

I only use a brush and oil paint. Truth is I only use three brushes to do the whole bird.

Hot glue from gluing the pieces back together when cutting out side view.

TJ, cut in from each direction leaving an inch still connected.  Cut the rest of the pattern and then remove the cuts when you're done.
