A new design created for 2015. This is an eagle made out of various hardwoods. The eagle measures, 12” x 21” x 7”. The tail stabilizes the eagle when it is at rest. You roll it along any surface and the legs will push the wings up and down. The beak opens to give it a different look as you play with it. It will look amazing just hanging from a ceiling or sitting on a desktop at work.
Only glue and clamps are used in the construction. This eagle contains small parts and should be supervised with small children.
My wife just loves this design and so far from the comments we have seen on facebook, hope it will be a good seller. I may make other birds from this style. The newly designed hinge system allows me to create more different types than the Pterodactyl. All these designs are original and created by Hardwooddesignz.

The last picture is the Eagle that came apart when being played with. You can see the amount of force put on the wings that caused the vibration in the moving parts.

I cannot help smiling looking at this eagle, I am sure everyone who sees it working smiles too…
