A Dudley antique style Hooded Merganser, pattern, bbootywood and hands on instruction on carving from Tom Modin ( many thanks! ) and a Smew out of some of Brandon's cedar, love that stuff.
Both are hollowed and just sealed with 2 part marine epoxy.
Blessings,

Nice looking birds Rick. When you cut them to do the hollowing process, what determines the line that you cut on? Looks like it's slightly below the center of the decoy, or is it right down the middle from bow to stern???
Thanks, Dan

Thanks Larry, yes the Hoodie was started at Toms with him providing tbe wood, pattern and help carving it all.

Thanks Brandon, that style did remind me of your work. I'm going to try and incorporate it into some blue wings I'm starting.

The cut line on the Hoodie was done by Tom and I honestly dont remember discussing it. That xcut starts under the tail, angles down, straightens and then angles back up slightly. The Smew body was done with two boards so there was no cut done.

Been kinda busy lately. Haven't been finishing much.  Here is a Lake Sturgeon I did for a friend of mine.  It came out better than I expected in the end.  I still need to stain the base and do some minor touching up on the fish itself.  Finally got around to starting some teal and mallards for myself as well.  I am off to school for a few weeks so they will have to be put on hold until late July.   
Too many hobbies, too little time.
