  1. Beautiful! 🙂

  2. sweet!

  3. That is very nice Sean!

  4. I also have a comment here from nitrousair
    which for some strange reason is not showing up here asking whether I use green wood or if dry ash works as well.
    Green wood is best. I have been known to boil up kiln dried ash and soak that for a week before using.
    This bird is from a 3x10x36 inch pine being sold cheap at the wood merchants. Very close grain. Again I prefer to boil before use. I find pines and firs a bit brittle, I love ash because even with a few fibres in the hinge it is so strong.

  5. Great! Could be landing in the water too I think. An excellent extension to your range.

  6. i love that duck Sean, i have to say you had inspired me (and many others i am sure) to carve fan birds, i have found it quite addictive. whilst us mortals can make acceptable birds i think you keep raising the bar to ensure yours remain insprational rather than easily copied!
