another find from moving—-these birds are made from one piece of wood—the pattern drawn and then cut on a band saw using a 1/8 inch blade. The pattern beck can be cut off to make finch style birds. Wood is pine with straight grain and 2 birds cut together can be one piece love birds. Wings are sawn and then amonia is used to soften wood to fold wings . These can be made in about 2 hours and make great gifts.

thank you for looking and please have a great Thanksgiving

Paul

I like your birds, cardinals are my wife’s favorite bird ,nice to make one for Christmas I don’t exactly understand The construction process after you shape the head and slice the feathers, if you twisted them to fan out they would brake off, wouldn’t they?

They will not breake of if you boil the Wood or he is using “amonia”.
But try with a soft Wood. That will properly Works best
