I was killing some time today in the woodworking section at the local Borders. I didn’t have anything particular in mind, I just wanted to take a look at my options.

One of the books that caught my eye was this one on birdcarvings. Knowing that one of our newer Jocks enjoys birdcarving, I took a look. The author’s face looked mighty familiar… and wouldn’t you know it, the book was by our very own OspreyBait!

Here’s a link to her book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1565231821/ref=sib_dp_pt/104-9015225-6726344#reader-link

I’ll have to go back and pick up a copy as didn’t have any cash on me.

It’s a great book, you can also buy it off of her web site at www.whisperingeagle.com. Of course I may be just a bit prejudiced because she is my niece…..... We both love wood…. we just work with it in different ways..

I agree wholeheartedly. I used Lori’s book to make my bluebird last year and I couldn’t have done as well without her guidance. Here is a link to the blog I did while making this piece. http://woodworks-by-donna.blogspot.com/
I give Lori lots of credit for a great book.

You’re lucky to have a Borders. Gone from here.

Bill, the original post is over six years old. I doubt the original poster still has a Borders near him.
