 Turned bird Instructions:

Woodturning a Bird from Richard Dlugo, 2018, AAW, steps simplified.

1. Mount square body and head blank on lathe.

2. Turn body. Cut tail on band saw.  Create flats on the sides of the body for wings.

 3. Drill ¼ inch hole in body for neck and 1/8 inch for legs.

4. Part the body from head blank. Sand.

5. Turn head slightly smaller diameter than body, fairly round with beak.

6. Drill hole for eyes and neck. Contrasting dowel or Pencil crayons work well.

7. Fasten head to body with neck dowel and attach legs. Leg and neck length can vary.

8. Mount and turn rectangular wing blank on lathe. Caution with depth.

9. Cut wings from blank, sand edges and glue to body. Position can vary but should be equal.

10. Head position can be rotated and glued or not. Legs can be bent in different positions. Apply preferred finish or paint.


These instructions will be avalible in past meeting notes as a printable PDF in april.  In the mean time you can copy and paste these to your word processer and print from there.
