Just a simple bandsaw cutout. Made from walnut with a light figure and some cherry resawed and planed down to 1/4 inch. A little chip carving to accent the eyes. Few coats of spray shelac over the top. I have made a couple of these as gifts.

This is really cool. I would like to ask your permission to copy this so I can make some for gifts.

Just the right amount of whimsical humor, an owl that had perhaps one too many.

This is a cute piece and I like the contrasting wood.

Well he’s a great looking owl—I like the whimsy of him!
