  • Golf Birds

    In the August 2012 Creative Woodworks & Crafts ( the other guys ) they had these birds made from golf balls. The ones I made were based on them. The only scroll work were the wings, head feathers and in one case the head/beak. Painted with acrylic.

            I did up a couple from the pattern for a friends upcoming golf tournament. I also added a piece of the wire drilled into the wings and beak and then drilled into the golfball to make it a little more unbreakable. It has been my experience gluing stuff to a gold ball breaks easy. Loved the project.

              I modified the wings and the tail and put 1/8 in wide fingers on the surface and then drilled holes where they would go and then glued them on. I agree that the wings and tail feathers just glued on were a little weak.

                    Those are just too cute! Like Jim Day, I wasn't overly impressed, but now I will have to go and research that article again. I do see some possibilities.

                      A friend says I need to make "Angry Birds" out of them, guess I'm old, don't know what those are so guess I better google them.

                        I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                        I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                        I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                        First off how thick is the board you cut?
                        When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                        that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                        for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                        I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                        Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
