Hi Gene! Yes the cape will be very diluted white oil paint through an airbrush.  Then burn the rest and by flap sanding, it will highlight the breast and wings and by using the torch carefully,  I can burn shadows where I need them. The eagle will be on rocks with a banner that says "Freedom".

Thsnk you Ron. I was told by the chainsaw king Chad Dancyk and  well known carvers Todd Gladfelter, Luke Sassani.... make the carving right. By that they mean detail can be super tiny but, it isn't what the eye sees but rather did you catch that moment. Yes flow is what I'm after. This was my first flying art. Everything matched and when its brought to life by burning and paint,  it will pop. The burning will hide mistakes and small detail so flow and capture are key!  Glad you liked it!!!

Great looking piece. How did you get 6 foot span in one log or is it one log? You have got to show when finished too. As a suggestion you might try the finished pic with a little studio lighting or outside in shade with nothing but grass as background.

Thank you Gerald!  Yes wings were separate.  Gorilla glue and screws. Hide the screw heads inside and mark em so the saw cuts around them. I put a base to it today with stones and a banner. I eill have a clean pic soon!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
