Wooden Feather

After making a good start on a new Willow bowl today, i grabbed the Carving Jack and started random whittling on a piece of scrap wood, then i remembered an article i had read not that long ago about making wooden feathers from junk wood, so i reached behind me and pulled the burn bin forward, then after a quick rummage, i found a perfect looking piece of Ash.

A short while later, i had carved myself a wooden feather and the effect of it is quite amazing, it doesn't matter that the feather is twisted and has bits missing, think about it, how many feathers, other than those just dropped, do you find that are in perfect condition?. Once i was happy with the overall look and feel of the feather, i located a piece of thick Birch bark and made a stand for it sit on.
