Lori Corbett’s interview has me dragging out my old bird samples.. This is a set of carved and painted panels I made on maple. The hope was someone would at say “wow that would look nice on a pair of cabinet doors”. That never happened so they just sit in the corner of my shop keeping the saw dust from getting swept up. I did sell a hutch with a chipmong motif and I use the robin as the back ground for my business cards. I usually paint with oils but on this project I switched to acrylic. The carving is a simple relief. I have a vision of all types of furniture projects using the same methods but as of yet no buyers. I really enjoyed making them…and keep thinking one of these days.
