*Spring Up-Date


ebb3Our “Bluebirds” Class and Carve-Ins are going very well. My Bluebirds are creeping along, just ahead of the students. The open-wings for my Eastern Bluebird are about 50% completed.  My new Proxxon Pen-Sander  is very helpful on the feathers.  On the “Private Lessons” side, I am proud to announce that Larry Long’s 2/5S Bald Eagle is 100% completed. In fact, the photo-shoot was a few days ago and I look forward to receiving the digital-photos soon via e-mail. I’ll post them  on my Photo Album’s Page in Larry’s new Portfolio Album.  Our Summer Class on the 1/2S Great Horned Owl begins in JuneGreat Horned Owl - The Prey's View.  Plan ahead to enroll.  We’d love to have you. 

Three American Avocet Shorebird Stick Decoys were completed over a month ago and “are gone”!  At least one of the remaining 9 Avocets must be completed prior to our next Woodcarving Show.  All 9 are over 80% completed now. American Avocet Shorebird Stick-Decoy 

Happy birding and Carving, Bill

*The Sun’s Shining Today


The sun’s shining today, it’s a bit warmer, June’s at work, getting paint-repair prices for my Miata, yard’s still too wet to work outside, plan to get a few hours in carving on my “bluebirds” prior to today’s “Carve-On” from 4-6p.m.! The “completed” W.B.Nuthatch is on June’s “paint-table” hoping for some attention from the beloved “paintmeistress”. The next “work-in-progress” on it’s way to her is my Ring-necked Pheasant. Like me, do you have some unfinished works gathering year’s of dust on a shelf in your shop? I bet that you do. If you are a “Hamonhaus Carver” and could connive to get that carving and yourself to a scheduled “Carve-In” with me, it just might become that next “masterpiece” you were hoping for. These Carve-Ins were created for you just for this situation. Been doing them for years. Humor me and come out of your early-carving-retirement today. You’re significant other will thank me for getting you off your, I mean, out of the house.
Happy birding and carving, Bill
