It is a mallard drake carved from black walnut. Carving is one of Mr. Wonderful's favorite winter hobbies. When he can't golf he can carve.
He free hand wood burns all the detail after about 30 hours of sanding.
Mr. Wonderful has carved about 135 birds. Every new one is my favorite. I love the beautiful grain of the wood and the detailed wood burning. The feathers look like they would move if you blew on them.
