This is a one piece carving of a Mallard Duck, that means the heads not glued on. The model I used for this was an Avon soap dish.

It’s 8 1/2” long, and I used Watco Danish oil for the finish.

Beautiful work, but it looks more like a “Wood Duck” than a Mallard “LOL”.

Thank you Mads!

Now’s the time to do it, because it’s Duck season.

I’d like to add, that Oak is an ideal wood for a carving like this, because the grain pattern

looks so much like feathers.

That is really nice.
Wyche Elm is nice for feathers as well.

Thanks Jamie

I just looked at some images of Wyche Elm, It really looks interesting.

I’ve never seen it before, it’s beautiful.
