Category: Woodpecker, Pileated
This shows continued progress of the bird family described in Pileated Woodpecker Family. The baby birds will appear in a hole carved in a beam. The sonotube is the same size as the beam.
These photos are taken without the lighting and preparation that will be a part of the finished product. They are meant to depict the process involved in fabricating a complex piece and not the finished quality.
This entry depicts the process involved in fabricating a commissioned piece showing an adult pileated woodpecker arriving at the nest and being greeted by offspring.
The three babies (actually teenagers as they are nearly full-grown) are shown in various stages of fabrication. Check the site periodically to see them come to life.
