    Thank you Janette ,I didnt know about the not cropping the ears ,when it comes to trends Im kinda slow lol will have to remember that though .

    Thank you Mike and the feathers are coming soon lol when I frst started I did a few fretwork pieces and after my saw broke I went to segmentation and havent looked back , dont think I would have the patients for it now lol and its not at bad as it seems just alot of sanding lol .

    Thank you Paul and its just from a single piece of 1x12 pine then stained and soon to be glossed , and pretty much all my pieces are the same way ,just pine.

    Thank you

    Looks good Charlie.
    Question - Is that pine and just stained? Or are there several different woods involved?

    Looks great, but where are it's feathers?

    Seriously, very nice job. If only I had the patience. Looking at completed projects like yours almost makes it tempting.

    Your boxer came out really nice! Great job.

    One thing I found with the boxer I made was everyone loved it, but unless they are for show, the trend is beginning to lean towards not cropping the ears. It took me a long while to find the right "owner" for my boxer and it turned out to be a breeder who thought it was perfect.

    I always say every piece has a home- it's just a matter of trying to find it!
