Family Time

Postby Benny8 » Sun Jul 24, 2011 2:41 pm

I just finished trestlecoating a half dozen teal decoys, and the wife and daughter ask me if I will teach them to carve foamers from the head to tail. I am taken back, and tell them of course I will. So, yesterday we glue up the heads(sandwich method) and cut out the bodies on the hotwire. Today we cut out the heads and they started carving their heads out. Here is a picture of them at work and with their heads in progress. It was a very fun day.

Have you noticed that common sense is not as common as it used to be???

Benny I'm thinking we need to come up with 2 more layout blinds from the looks of things. Nice job Sara & Nicole.

The girls were at it again. The decoys that is. My wife finished carving the heads and then the bodies and got the eyes set and the bills Apoxy Sculpted. My daughter finished her head and body and got it glued on. It has been some quality family time, talking about everything under the sun and of course duck hunting. Especially about our upcoming family hunting trip to Missouri in January.
