Carving the 3 or 5 Minute Owl!

A traditional first carving to teach is the 3 or 5 minute owl. To complete this little owl, you must use your knife to make stop cuts, thumb push cuts., and stab cuts; at the very least. It's fast, easy, and teaches knife use.

Nice Tom really nice.
Such a good idea for a beginners piece.

That's a great project for anyone to practice basic cuts. It would also fit well on some of the mini totem poles that I'm carving and I'm gonna have to make this progressive model for teaching the kids. Great project!
