Quick & Easy!
I like to do quick and easy little carvings/whittlings. I do think that quick and easy kinda go together. And my very short attention and interest span accommodates these little projects. This "string" of fish is the result of two occurrences. First, an article I read in an old Field and Stream magazine about ice fishing with lures. The article had photos of several life sized carved fish lures. Second, when ever I see a band saw at a carving event, I check out the waste/scrap can for pieces of basswood. These little fish lures are about 2 to 3 inches long. They are very easy to carve and even more fun to paint. This little eagle is real easy too. It's carved from a piece of 3/4 x 3/4 inch basswood, that is finished to 1 1/2 inches tall. I'll work on a tutorial on carving the Eagle.
