Each wing is hand carved from a solid piece of kiln dried hard wood, not steam bent. Cutting the wing from solid wood allows the lines of the grain to follow the contours of the wing giving a striking effect. The wood is then smoothed and sanded using various grades of abrasive paper. Each pair of wings are then individually balanced with the body as each piece of wood has its own weight and characteristics. A lacquer is then brushed on to seal the grain and after further sanding a wax polish is applied to finish the bird, allowing the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. Comes in 31" and 38" wingspans.
