    Just looking at it is enough to make my veins pop. Very nice work.

        Looks great! Try photoing it on a black background, it will make the veining stand out even better i think. Dale

            Well done!

            Well done, Daryl, well done looks real good.

            Those are Cardinals. Don't you have them in the North country?

              Take a piece of the same wood and do lots of veining on it, then stain and paint it before you do your beautiful bird. It looks great the way it is.

              I find that the veining gets lost in dark wood

                Yes we have Cardinals, even had some feed in my backyard last year. Didn't see them this year, only a bunch of Blue Jays coming on the railing and yelling at us if there are no peanuts for them, sharing with the Grey squirrels (a couple of which are now pregnant). These last few weeks, the Common Grackles have started to eat the peanuts too; but their approach is so hypocrite it's a turn off, they also are loud and their yellow eyes make them look kinda evil

                I live in an urban setting, on the South Shore of the St-Lawrence from Montreal.

                In our backyard, so far we have seen feeding:
                Norther Flicker
                Blue Jay
                American Robin
                White-crowned Sparrow
                Dark-eyed Junco
                Northern Cardinal
                Red-winged Blackbird
                Common Grackle
                House Finch
                American Goldfinch
                House Sparrow
                Morning Dove
                Rock Pigeon
                European Starling

                Just was looking for ducks I guess
                To tell the truth, I just didn't look close enough and mistook the tail feather for a branch, so it looked like a bird with no tail feathers which looked really weird to me.

                  Daryl, you did a real good on all that veining.

                      Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                      Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                      will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
