Little Owls - Continued

Seems that several things conspired over night.  Couldn't make up my mind about the owls; so will select all.  What's the difference, they're "givers" anyway.  A variety is always better.  And I also went to town and purchased some stain.

These little owls will become part of a tip the next time we go to the OWL CAFE.

Notice that one of the owls is the 5 minute owl.  Easy and fun to do, and makes a great "giver", especially with a pin back attached.

I've recently discovered your blog and it sure is a pleasure to read! For this post in particular, how do you finish the wood to make it dark?

I First apply wood conditioner then walnut stain. You can adjust the walnut stain by thinning it a bit to lighten, and then wipe the wood immediately.

Thanks for commenting....Tom H
