I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.
It is very pleasant work carving bird bowls. I start with a branch and a few roughly sketched lines. After much bulk is removed with the axe and adze, much of the carving on these small bowls is done sitting down with a couple knives and a gouge or two.
I’ve finished a couple recently, one in birch above, and another from a curved cherry branch (below). I’ve just posted them, as well as another cherry bowl (further below) to my available for purchase page at the website if you’d like to have a closer look.
Marvelous work as always. Thanks for showing them in your hands. It is nice to see the scale.

Love the poetic quote. The birds in my garden are in full song this month, it is truly beautiful and uplifting to hear them. Planting trees & bushes and providing feeders for several years has really helped restore the bird life.
