Well, this is Percy. Looks similar, my wife says, to the eagle at Disneyland! I've never seen that one, but that's what she thinks!
This guy is about 3.5' from head to bottom of tail. Think of him mounted on the top of a post, greeting all your company!
The price on Percy? $400.

a BLOG for me!
I'm gonna attempt to show you what I create when I create it,
so you know what I have available!
I love and live carving. I love wood. Crave it.
And when I see a log, preferably cedar, I invision in my mind what it is... and start carving!
It's a long process from beginning to end.
Starts with the roughing out, with the chainsaw.
Then the detailing, again with the chainsaw.
I then smooth out and fine finish.
Finally comes the stain, or burning, for coloring
and the finish coats. Several of them.
I've been carving for 16+ years. Been running a chainsaw most of my life, cutting wood. Didn't know I had the talent until I met another wood carver who was a very talented artist. He showed me how to carve, and I've been carving ever since. To heck with cuttin' firewood!
I live at the foot of Mt. Hood in Zigzag. Built my own home. Live in it with my wife, Danella, and our three cats. My shop is a few steps from my home, so I don't have to drive to work. I've a bit over 2 acres. Lots of room to roam and spread out. If I'm home, I'm open for business! Stop in and say hi.
Following blogs will have postings of what I do, and am doing. Keep checking back. Maybe you'll see something you love!
