just looking through bruce burk books very good patterns with coloured instuctions for paintg no carving guide but its not neccsary as once you carved one duck you can carve any

Quite a collection of quackers!  You install eyes before paint?

not a great deal done but drawing more wild fowl as interested in unusual species to the Uk

stopped making sticks for other people they always set a time limit its a case of doing what I want when I want I  don't mind if they want one I have already made as ,long its a sensible offer

 

 

but it is relaxing dressing a stick

Another request for a interchangable topper

so back to research and some drawing to do .I have the shank alllready fitted with the crews and ferules  so just the carvings

a kookaburaa , cokatoo. and parot not sure what parrot it is ? yet

the cockatoo looks like it could be a problem with its crest more for the user its to venerable

people seem to like the idea of changing the toppers
