THE THREE MINUTE OWL
Jim only taught eye to eye..and knife to wood...NO PATTERN.. years later a good friend of mine , John Lukens came up with this one and I used it in a class in Longview with the club as that were attending a LEWIS and CLARKE function in the park and wanted something to give to the kids
I used all scrap wood.. and cut to whatever size I could get out of it BUT nothing larger than 1/2 inch and most of them smaller. IO never really use a pattern and only made a few pencil markings for the firs 25 or so.. since the wood was not always the same size it was faster just to carve away with the knife.. Later I started to use a small V tool to do the claws and a small #11 to do the eyes.. as it was much quicker... ENJOY...
Over the years I have just carried them around in my pockets and given to almost everyone I encountered.. at the bank,store,doctors office, and car dealers .
Oh..the problem I had.. "it was from a blood thinner they had put me on."
so if you are on AGGRENOX and have a head problem(or headaches) STOP.
I called my doctor after talking to a friend.... and he said "Stop for a week and then give me a call".. I skipped to pills and was up and running the next day..
