the birds are one piece of wood. I was taught by lady who makes these for a living.

The bear is from scrollsaw workshop plans.

The piggy bank still has the protective film on the plastic and is of my own design.

So… those birds are from one piece of wood!? That is pretty interesting that someone makes a living doing those. Pretty cool!

BTW… nice counter top too.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Nice little projects, that’s a great looking carving with birds, I would like to try that one day.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

the bird was inspired by Gwen Hadland. She makes puzzles for Made in Oregon. Fantastic lady.
I wil post producton pictures later—I had no idea anyone would would be interested in making these. The are sawn on a band saw using a .10 thousands blade that is 1/8 inch—I used a roybi table top saw.. But I think a
scroll saw would work too. The wings are soaked in water then bended into place.

Thank you for the feed back.
