This project was a journey, I spent about a year and a half collecting the material for it and a few more months bringing it to life. Built form cedar roots each piece was scribed in to place glued, screwed and doweled. Working with the natural shapes to capture the life, energy,and movement of the eagle. I thought this would be a fun one to enter in the art of joinery.

Thanks and enjoy everyone
