Default I think I need a menagerie license

Remember that old song by bobby darin "multiplication"?

Bob, the top one looks like a male and the other a female. That is the reason they are happy. What about some children? They both look good.

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

Don, i really dont like doing repeats, I like to do everything on the spur of the moment (hey, its a hobby!). But the first owl caused quite a bit of interest, to the point it almost became a bidding war. So i thought I would make a few more to cover the wood costs and maybe boost the tool fund.
By the time I was half way through the second one it was like being back at work. Repetition, deadlines, constant comparing to see if it was the same, stress.
Uh uh. Dont do that no more. So i took them both to the vet's and there wont be any baby owls, thats for sure.

Over time, husbands and wives often come to look more and more like each other. That's probably what happened here. That, and leaving them along together overnight. Oh, wait, that's rabbits...

There is a way around that. First, do not, repeat not, have a deadline. Second, make a piece every once in awhile, whenever you feel like it. Maybe make a piece, then make the next piece a week later. Just anytime you have a bit of time to spare, and don't mind making another piece. Heck, take a year making the whole thing if you want, and do NOT take orders, just put it up for sale.

One thing I have found, if someone really, really, pushes you to make something you really do not want to make, charge them. Charge them a lot. A whole lot. Then charge some more. And NO deadline, they get it, when you feel like finishing it, and that is it.

Nice owls by the way. I'd like to order one.
