  • Sparrow Hawk

    I finished this project this weekend. According to the book, the Sparrow Hawk is also known as the American Kestrel. I used 1/2" Ash for the upright and 3/4" Walnut for the base. It is approximately 10 1/2" high. The pattern is by Jacob Fowler and found in the new book, Woodworker's Pattern Book. The blades were FD UR #1 and #3. The finish is spray Shellac. Comments welcome.

    I like the pattern and the work is excellent. The dark base sets it off nicely.

      Thanks for the comment. The Ash is lighter on the other side. I should have taken two pictures.

          Another beautiful piece Denny. I am sure it is as Fibber noted, much more beautiful in person though. Thanks for showing.

              First, let me say that I love your piece and it looks spetacular.
              I see that you used spray shellac.
              On fret work I've tried spray, brushed on, and dipped.
              I love the ease of spray and the control I have for even coverage and minimal running, but sometimes choose the other methods depending on size, number of holes, size of holes, etc.
              But sometimes I wonder if I get stuck in a rut on my choices, and maybe I need to think about it from another point of view.
              What determined your choice to spray finish this?

                Great looking project! I like your wood choices. Like Fibber said it is a beautiful bird.

                  Thanks Linda. I first dipped in Shellac diluted with 50% Denatured Alcohol as a sanding sealer. This gets into the frets. I then use spray Shellac lightly so no runs, no drips and no errors. LOL. Shellac dries quickly and smells better than Polyurethane.

                    Thanks Rolf. The Ash is different on the other side. Much lighter.
