    This is a Nun pigeon that I woodburned. 4.5 inches tall, 3 inches wide, 8th inch thick. This piece has been sprayed with an acrylic gloss for protection (after I took the picture. If you would like a picture of it with the gloss, let me know). Great for any Nun pigeon fancier's stocking this Christmas! Then they can show off how there's 'nun better' than their birds! [​IMG]

    Hi Becky, Can you post a price for special orders? I may have a couple of Racing Homers I want done.

    I'm fine with doing special/custom orders [​IMG] But the price will depend on the size of the wood. I just recently started making pieces like this, so I don't have any more precut ones on hand. We have a ton of wood around here, so hopefully I'll get some more cut out (probably more of these small ones, along with a few other sizes/shapes).
    Of course if you have a certain size in mind, I'm sure I could make it work [​IMG]

    Since you mentioned racers/homers, I figured I'd post this in case you're interested in this kind.

    We can zip out these guys pretty quickly, as we already have a template made out for it. I can woodburn it to look like your birds. That particular piece, the second foot kept breaking off due to the grain of the wood, so I just left it off. But with two feet, it's about 8 inches tall and a little over 8 inches long from tail to breast. That one was for a woman who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Of course the ribbon isn't required, LOL. The grain irritated me because the lighter wood burned more easily. Thankfully we do have better stuff to work with now.
