Here is a “comfort bird” pattern taken from issue 57 of Carving Illustrated. It’s a fun and easy project- except for all the sanding! A spindle sander is highly recommended.
Wood is alder, cherry, and walnut finished with lacquer. I need to touch up a couple of spots and take these to the buffer for a final polish.
These comfort birds will probably be gifts for the recently bereaved as a reminder that God cares for all his sparrows.

I think this is for the birds … pun intended. Those are some sweet and smooth little birds!
Reminiscent of the “pet stone” people used to carry for comfort and support!
