African Grey Parrot Carving

A customer ordered this as a gift for a loved one. It is a life size African grey parrot roughly 14″ tall (not including stand), carved out of seasoned poplar heartwood. It was carved with chainsaw and smaller power tools. Oxalic acid was applied to change the green tint to orange/brown. Then, minwax provincial stain was applied to match the furniture in their house. Finally, several coats of satin spar were applied to seal and protect. I hope you enjoy seeing the process…
