Comfort Birds - also w/ Template & WIP

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Comfort Birds - also w/ Template & WIPI've been carving a few Comfort Birds lately. I've finished about 13, and have quite a few in process too.
I was trying to make some out of every kind of wood in my shop, but I don't know if that will happen at this point!Notice I made a template from some aluminum flashing. That speeds things up a bit. Now I need something that will speed up finishing. That's the thing that holds me up. I can saw out and carve one in about an hour, and then the sanding from 100 – 400 grit takes about another hour. The finishing with wipe-on polyurethane takes… well I don't really know since it takes several applications and there's always some blemish that needs retouching…Anyway, I've enjoyed carving these and giving them to friends and family.Cherry, Alder, Walnut, Mahogany, Sapele, Poplar, Red Oak, Ash, Fir, Paulownia, Lignum Vitae, Wormy Hickory, Rubber Wood, Beech, Peach, Chinaberry
