Finky, that is One Cool Eagle. Looks like it was made by the NE Indians for a totem pole. Very difficult to do and get that Tlinket look.

Thanks all.

Hewey, no worries mate! This wasn't a lifestyle change, just a favor for my wife. More tikis to come!

Conga and Gman, it didn't occur to me that it would be tiki influenced, but I suppose it would have to be since literaly everything I've ever carved has been a tiki!

Tikiduddy, Thanks! The wood is mahogany. Caw!

Ben, thank you so much. I wanted to make a Native American style eagle, so I'm glad you think so too!

This is a little piece that will be part of a wall hanging I'm donating to a cancer raffle. The stuff on the forehead was supposed to be a jellyfish design I saw on an old piece of tappa cloth, but when my wife saw it she said, "Cute acorn!"

Oh well, I'll try harder next time.




I'll post the finished pics tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Ben! I didn't spend much time on this one, so it's not very even or inventive. The next one I've started should have a more vintage look. I believe it's a small piece of maple that you sent me a while ago.

Here is the finish pic. Thanks for looking!

I've always liked these kinds of wall plaques with the bamboo, finkdaddy. You've done a top notch job on it.

Fink,

That's great stuff! I love the way you mounted that piece. The acorn really sets that carving off......

Sam G, thank you very much! I'd like to try some more of these and see what I can come up with. If I can figure out a way to do the bamboo part quickly I'd like to try a run of resin cast tikis and see how that works.

Gman, I never saw an acorn until my wife said it and now that's all I can see! Thanks for the kind words.

JohnnyP, thanks man, you're my new best friend.

Looks good man

Maybe a bigger carving or smaller bamboo? The piece is lost a little in the size of the bamboo me thinks..

I see a jelly fish doing an impression of an accorn!

That's excellent, F-daddy. Good job with the cordage at the boo joints. How big is the whole thing, can't really tell from the pics.
