Though not specifically a bushcraft or field related topic, I thought you all might enjoy this. An expert duck decoy carver in my town has agreed to take me under his wing (pun extremely intended) and teach me how to carve decoys. I'm very lucky to have such a skilled worker that is willing to pass down his craft to the next generation. This will be the first big thing I've carved besides small twig projects while waiting for Mr. Buck to show himself in the clover patch. It'll be a miniature, not a full sized decoy. I don't have any real carving tools so I'll be making due with what I have, ranging from various sized pocket knives to my ESEE 4, Fallkniven F1, and Mora. I figure this can be an ongoing thread of my progress from start to finish. We cut out a rough shape and marked what needed to be cut. All will be done by hand with very little help from power tools. Hope everyone enjoys!
