Key Key Bird

Sometime between 2012 and 2015

Time to carve: 3 hours
Finishing: 2 hour

This is a lot of fun to wear! So when people look at it you reach to the wire and all of a sudden the key-key bird moves. The "tree" was cut from a downed tree branch and hardest part is drilling out the hole in the trunk. If you look closely, the hole is drilled down a branch into the center hole for the neckerchief. I gave the "tree" a few coats of poly to get a good seal on the bark. The bird is carved from a scrap piece of maple and painted with craft paint. Small bits of feather were glued into a hole in the head and the wire was glued into a hole in the back the bird. The wire is run through the hole, out through the bottom of the slide, and then down your shirt and out the bottom just above your belt
