This is I guess what you could call a Bandsaw bird.

Amongst all my” Boys toys” there is a tub of craft type “stuff” all sorts of nick knacks, in there, stickers, poly styerene balls flocking material stencils, felt craft paper and letter beads for doing activities to entertain any small friends that happen by, and me of course when nobody else is watching !

The Flocked Bird.
It was made from a plan I saw in one of my box making books
Fairly straightforward cut out the compartments with the band saw,
The beak was formed the same way.

The finish is oddly enough flocked, It was done in sections with masking tape covering the previously completed sections.
The beak and legs were done with yellow dye and a couple of stick on novelty eyes two dowel for the legs and a pair of boat shaped feet completes the build.

Thanks Guys,

It was one of my earlier projects when I bought a band saw I saw lots of band saw boxes and wanted to do something different.

I posted it to generate some support for Flocking as I saw some technology trying to replace it

Flocking is not for everybody but its a good activity for young visitors who want to make something but you dont want them cutting sanding or hurting fingers or their hearing in their enthusiasm to explore wood working.
