CARVE A SAW-WHET OWL WITH CAM MERKLE
|Over 8 weeks (2.75 hours per week; total 22 hours) you will carve (using power carving tools), texture and finish a
5-1/4” high, realistically-shaped, natural finish Saw-whet owl perched on a stump from a single piece of butternut
There will be no painting in this class; we will apply natural finishes to the bird to bring out the unique woodgrain beauty of each piece. This class will be of interest to carvers of any experience level; whether you've never carved a bird before or you’re an expert, you will find this class enjoyable and challenging as Cam works with each individual student based on their experience and abilities.
When the class is done you'll have a beautiful carving that you'll be proud to display! You'll also have learned many new skills.
The Razertip classroom is a fully-equipped facility where each workstation has all the top-quality tools and equipment you'll need to complete your project. Even if you have tools of your own, you won't need to bring them (unless you really want to).
A fee of $230.00 includes everything - a bandsawn blank, study notes, pattern, finish coat, and any other tools and supplies as needed (also includes all applicable taxes). All you need to bring is a desire to carve your bird!
