I have a customer that is a Veterinarian. We built him an office using among other things some Cedar beams.
I took one of the rough cutoff sections that was left over and carved this owl. I just looked at various pictures and roughed it out with hand tools and a grinder. The detail work was done with hand tools, a dremel and pyrography.
The final touch was some glass eyes and a pipe stand that I made resemble a log with some welding. This took about a month of on and off work. It is a joy to give these gifts.

Love the texturing on the feathers and the eyes make it look real.
Great job and a great gift. Thanks for sharing.
