Winter 2011

This Winter 2011 issue gives readers a tour of Peter Kaune's "carving cockpit," the first glimpse of a saw-whet owl project, and a dual history and carving lesson on decoys done in the Blair style. Jamie Welsh will also walk through the process of restoring a carved wooden swan damaged by fire and how she used her skills to tackle the tall order. This issue also features two different songbirds, the cedar waxwing and the brown thrasher, which will delight readers with their unique personalities.
