August 2107 News & Updates:
1. I'm carving traditional Bellamy Eagles, ca. 1890's Portsmouth, NH & Kittery, Maine. About to gold leaf 6 eagles. I've done five styles so far. See photos from my carving bench at the bottom of this page for a slide show and my new "Bellamy Eagle" page for photos and tutorials.
I've got a new eagle, the "Bellamy 1812 Eagle" almost done - click on the eagle page for a slide show on how I made it.
