Book Bird


I made this as a gift.



The box is origami, and I cut a small square of fabric for padding.



The bird is carved from Cherry and finished with Danish oil.




I found a gum pocket (the black line which runs through the head and onto the wings). I was very luck that this didn’t compromise the strength of the wood, and actually works well running through both the eyes at the same level.




Here is the piece with a hand for scale, I used my finger as a guide size when making it.




And finally here it is in use.
