"Oh Hoot" owl peeking out of a tree knot hole. Woodland Ornament series>
I used the following 3/4” & 1/2" thick wood for this project;
Owl - Maple for the "LT", Spalted Maple for the "ML" & "M", Redwood Burl for the "D", and Spanish Cedar for the beak.
I used 1/2" thick Western Red Cedar for the tree portion on the front and the back of the ornament. I used the WRC because it is light weight.
I used Ambrosia Maple for the two pieces on either side of the owl.
3/8" Walnut dowels for the eyes. I used a modified hand screw clamp to drill the highlight in the dowels.
A Wonder Wheel and a 6" diameter wire brush was used for adding texture. I attached the wire brush to my bench grinder, be sure to wear eye protection.
Suggested Blades: Gold #5 for Western Red Cedar, Pine, or any softwood. Platinum Plus #3, Platinum #5, TLB #5 for the Aspen and Basswood. PLP #2/0, or TLB #2/0 to cut the interior lines (after the exterior lines are cut).

6" wire brush attached to the bench grinder to add a rough texture to the exterior.
Handscrew clamp modified (cut notch) to hold the dowels for drilling.
The two sides are glued on top of the back section, then the sides are sanded to make an oval shaped ornament.
All of the parts are glued on top of the back section.
You will not need a backing for this project.
