October Workbench
« on: October 01, 2013, 10:46:38 AM »
September was a busy month, and you guys did some fabulous stuff!
I?ve had this fella ?on the bench? for a couple of years now. Didn?t really care for it, so it has been set aside, but with the new season looming, I figured I?d finish him up and add him to the rig. HD Cork, Tupelo head, Bbooty tail, acrylics, the keel will be maple. My favorite duck, but I?ll be darned if I can do ?em justice in my carving. I hope to have him finished by weeks end. So w/o further adieu, I?ll start off the October thread?

I can see why you never finished it. Send it to Missouri I will hate on it whenever we gun it lol.

Very nice bird

Yeah, I guess if we couldn't find a bleach bottle to paint black and white, it'd do.

Glad you finished it Rob. We all have birds we feel that way about but you know when we finish them they gun great. Hunting season is open for me so carving has stopped for the most part. I have quite a few decoys I wrapped up I need to get pictures together of to show but I just have not had much free time. Family, Hunt, Work, Sleep. Those are the priorities for the next two months.  ;)

A goldeneye on a stick? I bet you look silly riding that thing around the living room.

Nice looking birds tom. GE ain't bad either OB. Bug finally bit my oldest son. He wanted a bird for the Chesapeake challenge. So we've been working on this wood duck all week. His first decoy. It's looking like a painting weekend.

That wood duck is a pretty aggressive first decoy. Looks great. Tom, I thought you didn't like doing mallards. Great looking rig.
