Jim Redhawk demonstrates how to carve an eagle head from a cottonwood blank. My version posted here as soon as I get photos to share. Enjoy Redhawk’s lesson until then. Shalom.
“…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Wood carvers create lots of dust and wood chips. What do you do with it all? One year in my Junior High carving classes a student asked if they could collect the chips after every class to take home for their hamster cages. We were happy to oblige. Another carver I know takes his chips and throws them in his garden to loosen up the clay soil. Obviously he has to think about the kinds of wood being carved to avoid toxic reaction with young plants.
Sergei Bobkov of Russia has come up with another way to use wood chips. In fact, he creates the chips just so he can use them. After looking at Sergei’s work you may want to try your hand. Please feel free to give me a call. I will sack up all the ones created in my basement for you. Enjoy.
