On the bench...
JW Decoys weekend projects
Wrapped up this little buffie, hes a little different style than I usually carve, but I dig it. I figgured since he was all wood and hollowed out old school, may as well go old school all the way.....
Hollowed basswood, acrylic paints, glass eyes, cocobolo keel.
Got this bluebill sanded and sealed, ready for color....
Hi-Density cork body, pine bottom board and tail insert, tupelo head, glass eyes
