Wood carving projects

Post by OLDE CUTLER » Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:52 pm

Usually my wood carving projects seem to go in this direction.
Wood Duck, Hooded Merganser, Canvasback, Pintail at front.

Or sometimes like this.

Now days I used an Exacto carving knife for the mini decoys, disposable blades, but I still resharpen them.

Those are really nice OC. I have only one wood carved duck from Big Sky Carvers. Maybe you should open a store here and start selling some. ::nod::

Thanks for your comments. I have been carving decoys, both full size and mini since 1986. Never really tried to sell them. We have quite a "flock" around the house now. On the full size, I still use my Grandpa's RT Brand draw knife that is over 100 years old. Wow, what an edge you can put on that one.

I prefer collecting antique Remington knives but I sometimes do some whittling. John

Does anyone do Santa carvings? I really enjoy them and would love to learn from others that carve them. Thank you, John

A good looking Viking you've got there. I've seen some Santa stuff on here. About the only carving I do on anything with a face is when I shave of a morning. That Viking is great, be sure and post any Santas you do.
