It is time for the pelican! On the original sketch George and I included a mallard flying into the building. Nothing against mallards, but we decided a pelican would be more fun. George has sketched a pelican halfway through the wall coming in for a landing. I always say, when people ask me, what is my favorite animal, that it is whatever I am carving at the time. And sure enough, it is true again. I have already cut out the feet, legs, body, head and neck of this guy. Not much to see except glued up blocks, so I am also including George’s sketches and my measurements and notes on one of them.

Today and for the next two days, along with the other members of our volunteer Maintenance Monkeys group, I am doing a major maintenance upgrade to the carousel mechanism so will get back to the pelican Wednesday afternoon I hope.

 

Until next time . . .
