This is an order for a mother and her baby Australian Magpie.
They have been hand carved and painted. And I have found a lovely white wax to finish off and protect without discolouring or darkening the paint work.

Neat job TJ65... Did you supply a set of hard hats with them… it’s swooping season now… and that baby is the catalyst!

Gar’n the WOODS!

Your bird carvings are so realistic!
Someday when I finish the cabinets in our home I‘d like to get back into carving.
Your an inspiration.
