    1st angel

    I thought i'd try something new to me.This is my first angel i've ever tryed, and thanks to a pic i stold from John lucas over on woods forum i thought it turned out ok. John is coming to demonstrate a angel in Jackson in nov. at the local aaw meeting, so i thought i'd try to figure it out and then go and see now he does it.
    Well it's made from a piece of scrap that i cut off from one of my box elder bowls, and it is 4 1/2" tall by 2 7/16" at the base
    As all way all comments welcome

    Still trying to figure how you turned the body and head without cutting off the wings..
    Good idea might have to try a few of those, I have some small pieces of misquite that are looking to be turned.

    That's great Steve... how did you attach the wings?
    You said you cut them from a small bowl?
    C'mon give us more info... we (I) might want to put the tutorial into my "I'm gonna do one of these someday" file.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Very nice angel. Those are fun and quite easy to turn once you get it in your mind. I drill the wings before turning, makes for a propeller sound, kind of psychs out my students!!!
