How do you know the end is near?

Postby Factor 8 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:10 am

You start prepping for the off season hobbies. Santa delivered a Foredom. Time to kick this into high gear! Got several birds to start on for next season. Also have a sheet of cork that is screaming my name. It seems i need to carve a King Eider for next season. It appears I'm headed to gun them again. :yes:

The difference in carving burr's. The little one was what i have been using. the big one is going to move a lot quicker and have less stress on the hand.

Mallards and Pintails are on the work bench. cut and ready to be glued.

Coot, I'm relatively new to carving. Not good enough yet to throw up some photos. Still working with foam because it's cheap.

Not sure if I'll see a bright light when that kind of end is near. :lol3:

22! What's pretty cool is the different styles and designs. A simple decoy, yet they are really unique. Are most of the wood carved or do you have some really odd ones?

Awesome! I've been doing foamers for a few years now, I'm hoping to move on to some cedar and basswood ones this year, and maybe try to make some masters for mold making. Nothing like shooting birds over your own decoys!
