  1. penguin

    That'll be a popular carving at this time of year.
  2. New to this forum

    Great piece of work. I bet that didn't hang around too long. Welcome and looking forward to seeing more carvings.
  3. Bit of fun

    Mousey Thompson would be proud of that. Great job Rick.
  4. Husqvarna Top Handle for Carving

    Top handle doesn't give you the control for carving, not a safe option unless you have the wrist strength of Kong and the skin of Godzilla. Rear handle give you the grip n control.
  5. Golden Retriever

    Like it and love the expression you have caught.
  6. Owly offerings

    Like the style of these Si, very effective.
  7. Owl in the making

    Nice work, like that.
  8. Latest Owl

    Thanks Si, still got a bit to do, but will thin down the wings and tail and then make an attempt on the face. Will try to call in at some point.
  9. Latest Owl

    Thought I'd have a go at a flying Owl.Still got the detail, burn n sand etc to go.
  10. Another Owl.

    Thanks Ian, will be trying your advice on the next batch.
  11. Wee squirrel

    Great carve.
  12. Another Owl.

    Hey Ian, no offence taken, just glad of the feedback. I get really frustrated at what I produce as it's never the same as what's in my head. Many thanks for the comments and if you have any tips on shaping the talons. Do you use saw, dremel or carving chisels?
  13. Another Owl.

    Many Thanks, not sure why but they do sell and people seem to like them. I have sent too many to the log burner and need to step up my game.
  14. Meerkat stump

    No worries, what's next?
  15. Another Owl.

    Many thanks, still not what I had in my head, but other people seem to want to buy them as I make them. Thanks again
