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.
