Sometimes you find the right piece of lumber for your project. That’s what happened here! It’s a piece of Ash that had a dark spot in the center and that is where the pheasant’s head ended up! The grass was a different shade of color along with ring of lighter wood. Took a piece of pine with bark on it and painted it hunter green. Gave the pheasant a couple of coats of shellac and then glued it to pine! The Ash was fairly fragile so I needed the backer board.

-- Curly, South Dakota! Now where did I put that board stretcher?

I can almost hear the muted thunder of his takeoff signalling an immediate lift and lining up of the shotgun.
Never have gotten over the thrill those ringnecks gave a gangly hilghschool freshman. Very good use of
the wood colors and excellent scrollwork.

This is a nicely done project and I love the design and methodology of it.

Super work on a select piece of wood. I am still waiting to put together a combination such as yours. I really enjoy your skill.

Very nicely done. Have you seen the one with the eagle. It is somewhat along the same lines as the pheasant.
