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.

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.
