Completed the barn owl on basswood. Spent 2 years off & on between projects. Also took a class on Intarsia, the use of multiple wood types for color and texture effect. Did 2 side by side eagles with instructor. The first is sanded and shaped and ready for finished to be applied. The second will follow soon. Also completed so holiday themed scroll saw works, Santa and crossed candy canes on basswood and painted. Attached chains for hanging by the door next Christmas. Won a contest in Woodcarving mag and got a real nice book on carving Cypress knees, probably a Santa from the one I have available, and an extension for another years subscription. Way cool.
