Flying Mallard

Mid Oct. 2009

Time to Carve: 3 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

Back to poplar, after my experience with the Carved Eagle, for the Flying Mallard side. The body and wing are made with two different pieces of wood and the grain runs differently for each to take advantage of the strength. The leg is a third piece of polar glued in place behind the wing. Painted with craft paints and finished with poly.

This slide looks a lot harder than it truly is and is one of my favorite slides.
