I did this Owl for my Husband. He used to have it sitting on his desk at work. Someone had knocked it off and he brought it home for repair. He actually cut thin stips of Lacewood, then glued them all together. The Lacewood looks like feathers. I didn’t know what I was going to make out of it until all the pieces were glued together and saw what looked like feathers. It sits inside the base in a groove. The base is made of Oak. The entire project measures 12”x10”x 1/4”.

The pattern was done by Jacob Fowler.

This is beautiful. Did the person who knocked it over offer to pay for it to be repaired or replaced? They should be billed.

First time I’ve ever seen an end-grain scrollwork – very cool!

The effect of the lacewood on end really has a striking effect – gotta remember that. :-)

Keep up the great work!

Beautiful owl! It looks wonderful. The grain really enhances the feathers. :)

This is nice work, Kelly.
