Brother Craig’s Wooden Ducky

I never know what to get my brother, Craig, for Christmas. This year I looked in the box of wooden “blanks” and decided that out of all the stuff I could wood burn for him, the duck decoy blank was the perfect gift. He loves the outdoors and hunting. I got on the computer to look at drawings and carvings of ducks. I decided that to basically sketch off the main areas and then artistically wood burn them with different patterns for an artsy look instead of a  realistic look. It was a lot of fun. I hope he liked his Christmas present. I wish I had another 50 to burn.
