  • Hummingbird

    I'm been humming along with this project. It the Hummingbird from Diana's book. It made from basswood. I broke off part of the beak while sanding I rushed it to the local vet but it was too late to save it but even with half a beak it does not look to bad. I thinking about making another one using some poplar with lots of green in the grain. Now dont get idea that I may become addicted to compound cutting I can stop any time I want, this is just not the time. Any and all comments are welcome.

      I think he's a beautiful bird inflight. I love hummingbirds. why not super glue the beak back on?
      Did you hear about the petco that was grooming a customer's dog and the groomer accidentally cut its ear off and they tried to superglue the ear back on...the owner had to take the dog to the vet where the vet said it looked like they tried to superglue it back on.,
      The owner was filing a lawsuit. My point is they can superglue the ear back on...you can glue the bird's beak back on.....long story, I know to make a point....but the bird looks good either way.

        Thanks DW and Catlyn for your nice comments. I didn't try and super glue the beak back on is because I have to idea were my mop sander flung it. I used a green highlighter to color the bird I think it looks kind of nice.

          Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

          I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

          These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
