I really like working with geometry and I love the challenge of making something that is symmetrical within a strong geometrically form. It sounds difficult but really it just means you start with a solid very rigid shape. Divided it into quarters or half’s, whatever. I know most of the people here on Lumberjocks may not be from Canada like me. I work in millimetres. So doing this I can get very exact.
I hope you can still see some of the pencil marks. I just follow a template and I carve down to the thickness I want the birds to be. In this case each bird will be about 2cm or one inch deep.
I will post more as it comes along.
