After seeing some of my work, my boss approached me one day with a request for his father. His father’s birthday was quickly approaching and he wanted to do something special. I talked to him about his father’s interest and hobbies, and I learned that he owned a 1956 Panhead Harley Davidson, and his passion was working on and restoring this bike. I wanted to incorporate this into something for him. I thought for a while on what could be done. I called my daughter who does computer aided drafting and design and who also has a love for motorcycles for some help with coming up with a design. She drew up the engine for me so that I would have a template, but we could not decide on what else to do.

A few days later while looking over some prints of an eagle, it hit me. The Panhead Eagle design was born. This is one of the largest designs I have created and it is comprised of hundreds of small pieces of wood. This is one of my favorite creations because of how detailed it is. I was very excited about completing this piece. I am always looking for new things to do, and this one was defiantly a very rewarding challenge.
