BALD EAGLE Weathervane

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the spirit of the Fourth of July, I thought the Bald Eagle weathervane my husband carved would be appropriate to post for the occasion.

Among many patriotic weathervane motifs, the eagle was popular everywhere.

Pattern taken from “Carving Early American Weathervanes” by Anthony Hillman (Dover publications).

The Bald Eagle is carved from recycled pine and then painted

The Bald Eagle measures: 12 inches x 10.5 inches, 3/4 inch thickness

Have a Safe and Happy 4th!

Enjoy!
