Seeing Lori’s interview reminded me of this big bird I carved.
A friend of mine gave me this crooked chunk of Cedar. It sat in the corner of my shop for a couple of years, before I could think of what to do with it. One day I was looking through a bird book, & right away I thought this is the bird for that log. It’s not the correct proportions, but I guess you can call this art. It had a rotted area were the legs had to be, so I drilled, & doweled the legs. I used band saw leftovers for the grasses.
