Default owl

Been a productive week in the workshop.
The owl is made from zebrano front and back, with a beech core. Eye patch is maple.
the trays are blue flocked, and the eyes are disposable contact lens cases, dipped in black paint. The beak is rosewood, also dipped in black gloss paint and then varnished.

That’s just pretty neat.

I like the way this opens up and comes apart. Some precision cutting going on there. I've never much liked zebrawood, too much grain to suit me, but it was a perfect choice for this great little project. The finish is terrific and the top, carved ears, is downright elegant.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Bob - you've got to be the resident expert on the bandsaw - another nice looking project. Hope you cleaned up that spill from earlier.

Vince, spill? what spill?
I didnt do it, nobody saw anything. you cant prove anything (with apologies to Bart Simpson).

Nah, it was spotted from 40 paces while i was still relaxing in my rocking chair. i know a couple of eagles that would kill for her eyesight.
I cant do much else with wood Vince, so I take care with what I can achieve, flattery is always accepted.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

An owl with contacts - cool! Nice work, as usual, Bob. I like the Zebrawood.

I don't believe that I've ever met zebrawood in person. Your owl is great: the contrasting woods, the flocking, the drawer handles and the finish, all beautiful. Great work Bob.

Bob, you are always coming up with some neat projects and you didn't let us down on this one.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
