Decided it's about time I got back into carving some sticks some might remember me from a way back so here goes got a couple of orders one for a cocker and another for a mallard drake only I didn't think about posting anything a here until I saw Holloways tufted so we'll have to see how this pans out. The wood for the spaniel was alder a much underrated wood for carving but for the mallard I have some pieces of black walnut kick around. . 

First a picture of the cocker so far still needs finishing lacquer to be applied. .

Hi all at last I have found a couple of hours to spend in the shed working on the duck head I started a time back now this is where it gets fiddly matching one side to the other..both eyes just pushed in so I can get the eye sockets right..a few more hours and hopefully it will come to it...
