During this time of isolation our club has decided to not hold meetings. Without our meetings we dont get the chance to share our projects and ideas with others in the club. I know during our meetings I get a lot of tips, tricks and techniques. To fill in the gap a little Ive asked members to email the projects they have been working on or are currently working on. I am posting them here and maybe even find some tips, tricks and things to inspire to post as well. I will continue to update as I get more pics and links. Hope this finds you all doing well and enjoy.

The Mourning Dove set was extremely challenging and if you think all doves are just a dirty grey…think again! Several hundred hours since January went into this project.
The Bald Eagle head is a basswood bust done with knives and gauges.
Hope all is well with all of you!

Not sure if this is Dave or Joan but here are two more projects finished.
Keep those pictures coming.
Tom has been working on watercolor painting.
Brad is in the process of making segmented bowls.
Brad is also trying his hand at painting again. If it looks like a duck he is getting better.

"I fabricated an air filter/dust collector from some scrap pieces of plywood and some plexiglass stuck back in my tool crib. I bought a 20” box fan and furnace filters at the hardware store. I have less than $20.00 invested."
"I intend to use the unit when I use my Dremel tool, am sanding or spray painting inside in my shop."
Joan is turning santa's into presidents for a friend.

"Whenever anyone asks me what I am working on, I reply “I don’t work, I have fun.” I have been having fun with my mutts, a little different kind of carving for me.
The Ferrari's are getting outdoors and doing some yard improvements. There really is a tree in that picture.....
Bob sent this in.
Carved a statue for my grandson, he owns and operates an ice cream shop in Anoka MN.
The name of his shop is “two scoops” it stands 18” tall. Will give it to on his upcoming wedding day.
Opps, maybe should not post this one till after the wedding?
Looks like Mark is making some good wood chips. Theres a few birds in there as well. Hope to see them painted next week.
Mark finished his Vermillion Flycatchers and a Northern Cardinal. He says Stay Tuned. Im guessing more to come.
