    Too cute! And a good job you did, as well. I hate painting as well, but what did you use that came out so shiny? And did you spray it on to get it so even?

      I did 3 of the small ones and hid them in neighbors yards, took them about 3 weeks to find them.

          I have made a lot of whirligigs in the past and found that Lowe's sells a water base gloss enamel Valspar paint that works well.. (I used it for the yellow) and Patio Paint from Michael's for the white, and Pumpkin Orange from Apple barrel for the feet. Then a coat of Ultra Clear Valspar for the finish. (I did drill holes for the dowels , but as my garden is watered every day decided to just let the birds set on the patio).. Looking for more like this.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
