Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawk

Mark has carved bald eagles but a red-tailed hawk looks amazing in cedar wood. The cedar was from our property. There is no stain or sealer, allowing the natural wood to show and change over time. All the details are created with chisels and the wood grain is burnt with a torch to bring out the shadows and highlights.

Two Owls Carved for a Wedding

We just said goodbye to this adorable pair of owls as their new owner picked them up for his wedding where they'll be a centerpiece display. We loved them so much that Mark carved a second pair which will be finished in the next week.

Chainsaw Bald Eagle

Chainsaw Bald Eagle

Mark completed the Bald Eagle this weekend! Amazingly, all of the detail in the wings was done with the chainsaw. Other woodworking techniques were used in the process, including burning the detail around the eyes and talons. A whitewash stain created the head and tail feathers, and the gloss finish tied the whole piece together. View the eagle's gallery page.
