I wasn’t happy with the first post and so I am updating with a better set of pictures. This bird is carved from downed wood found on a hike and the tail was completed with additional downed wood from a second hike. The tail is oak but the rest is mystery wood to me.
The finish is mineral oil and beeswax, a food-grade product generally used to preserve chopping boards. I wanted to keep a “natural” finish that had no particular health side-effects in the application.
