Well, I am almost done with the Eagle head. Just a few details to add including the tongue. Then a finish. This has been a very fun project to do. I have learned soo much. So without further a due.

Thanks for lookin. I am going to put a clear finish on it to bring out the beauty of the wood.

Great work on the Eagle’s head Rick. The feathering and features are coming out real nice. You have really come along on this project.

I should have it done tomorrow. I was thinking of mounting it to a base to make it look like it is a taxidermy head.
