Here is my entry for the fluidity contest. It took me a long time to come up with something. A couple of days ago I saw my duck scroll saw project that I did a while ago and thought that it portayed fluidity very well. I decided to make this one more advanced by carving it. I carved the duck from a block of western red cedar. I couldn’t believe that it turned out that well for my first time ever doing something like that. The water was also carved. It was a lot easier because all I had to do was take a gouge and just run it in straight lines to get a wave effect. The cat tails were the easiest because I just did them on the scroll saw. After all of the parts were complete I sanded them and painted them. This project was a great learning experience and I am so thrilled that I actually did a carving like that.
