I really enjoy spotting a woodcock in the forest when I go up to fish the Pere Marquette River in Michigan. Only 8 inches long and 4 inches high, a woodcock carving adds a pop of color to a shelf.
A frequent visitor to my feeder, the cardinal is a joy to carve on a cold winter afternoon. He is 8 inches long. I also carve female cardinals which I think are even prettier than the males!
Brook or Rainbow trout doesn't matter, I love to fish for and carve trout as well as the warm water species like the walleye and smallmouth bass at the top of the page.
That sounds redundant since this Woodie is made of basswood. Add a little color to your cabin with a wood duck carving.
I saw this little bluebird on a walk with my dog, Bucky, and just had to carve him. Mounted on a cherry burl he is just 5 inches tall and will fit easily on your shelf.
NOTE: I no longer sell carvings through my web site. Contact me if you are interested in a carving.
