    Indeed you have! great job. Actually a great job on both. I think the biggest problem with the first was material selection. I really do like that style of pattern.

    The latest one is awesome! I like the grain and I like the beveled edge you gave the wood....I think it is beveled.
    Fine lines and a much steadier hand than the first time through!

    Congratulations on making such a fine piece

      Thanks. I beveled the edge and burnt it with a torch to give it that bark effect. The first ever piece was luan by choice for practicing and getting the feel phase. Cut alot of test pieces and had alot break because of the luan voids.

            Very nice job cutting that pheasant. The "bevelling and burning" technique looks like it works well.

                I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...
