ruddy duck pics and about woodburners

well folks the ruddy duck is done, and i am about to start with the hobo santa/snowman relief (called friends) the last two ruddy duck videos will be on tonight, it was a fun project, and if your a new carver you will need to have a woodburner, please if you can afford a woodburn that is sold at carving shops and woodcarving show, its well worth it, some woodburning pens that you can purchase in a hobby chain stores are not the same, i believe that the woodburner i used or ones that are the same, cost about 80-120. i can only tell you that i had my woodburner for the last 22 years or longer ( lol ) i cant remember its been to long .... but anyway, i recommend if you can afford a good one to buy it. it will last years, now some of the replacement tips , can cost 12-30 depending on which burner you get, and you may have to replace it from time to time, the ruddy duck teaching videos does teach you how to make feathers etc, if you want to follow the ruddy duck videos to learn how to carve and burn your welcome to check it out at http://www.youtube.com/carverswoodshop if you decide to do this project that you enjoy it, arleen

Hi Arleen,
Thanks some more for these great tutorials. I'm in love with the ruddy duck. You're not only teaching me to carve, you're showing me how to use my fancy pyrography tool that has gotten almost no use since it was purchased.

Cheers --- Larry
