Finally finished this little cutie. I need to work on my painting skills, especially with acrylics but I still like him. Had a devil of a time figuring out what kind of habitat to do with him since I wanted to give him as a gift to a friend.

Dani and Zane, thank you for the kind words. This may become a new obsession. My mother was very happy with it and I got a lot of positive feedback.

I will admit that I ordered a 12x16 walnut cutting board because I wasn't sure I had the skills or tool precision to pull this off. I never opened it and returned it on the 26th. I had two extra rows after I cross cut, I split them in half and glued them into a ~8x8in board that will perfect bar board or serving board.

I did end up spending about the cost of buying a board on quality parallel clamps but now that I have them I will put them to use.

Between hunting, shop time and Christmas I haven?t had a chance to post pictures.

I, too, was busy with decoys, a salmon fly shadow box( ala Gary Tanner)c, harcuterie boards and cutting boards.

I?ll try to finish the decoys this week with a few paint details.

.

I made this shadow box for my son with his great-grandfather?s ancient double hook Atlantic salmon flies. Thanks to Gary Tanner for the inspiration and his blog posts online.



I really enjoyed making the 1/2 size 1950 Fender Stratocaster charcuterie board for my professional musician niece and Baltimore Ravens and Orioles themed cutting board. This charcuterie board was from an old Cherry board that Wiz Boz gave me in 2016.



Another charcuterie board from a slab of black walnut that I?ve been hoarding since the 1970s

What do you use for your wood (head & tails)?

Heads are basswood, tails and bottom boards are pine
