Flattie Crow Decoy

All you need is cedar and a knife…

I have been too busy to get any extended time in the shop this last week. When I get even a few minutes free though,  I seem unable to stop carving  wooden crow decoys. The family Corvidae has my attention.

This is not a full bodied crow but in the ‘flattie’ style. It is also for sale on my Etsy shop.

I had a hard time getting together a pattern for my crows. Does anyone else have trouble finding good bird patterns? Please let me know if you have found some that you are really satisfied with. I have been photographing birds and making my own.

More cool tools are coming.

My father does a lot of metal work and a couple weeks ago I had asked him to make me some straight bladed draw knives. I got them and they turned out great. You will be jealous, I promise. I will post pics of them soon.
