tom,
that is one crafty bench you have there. You are a very talented guy! Post more pics of your birds; I love seeing them; they make me smile. They are so sweet and innocent!

Great idea, how did you attach the ladder rack?

Very nice, Tom. You must do a lot of carving. Do you start with a picture of the bird and then make copies like it seems you're doing in the pictures? That's a nice way to add a little pocket change to your budget.

Judy, thanks, I used to bandsaw my own blocks of songbirds and waterfowl when I lived in a stickhouse and had a shop. but since I cant carry a bandsaw in my monty I just buy the blocks of wood already roughed out. I do use actual pictures of different birds and waterfowl, some I have taken with camera, some I cut out of magazines. Each carving is different, no 2 alike. Most of the time I will have 4 to 5 different carvings started at the same time. 85% of carving is done with carving knives, and some with dremel and foredom rotary tools with diamond bits. then the detailing starts, then follows the "hard" part for me is the painting. I use acrylic's, a mixture of 95% water and 5% paint, and done with up to 12 to 15 washes. Lawd I get to talking to much!! sorry

That's a neat setup. I was thinking of making a wooden base with my vise and grinder attached, which I could then clamp to a picnic table, but I like your rig better. You can work close to the tools, etc. and be under the awning. You also don't have to depend on having a picnic table close by.
Great idea which I will probably copy.

LOL, Larry, I tell you what, friend, you build yours and show it and I might be coping yours!!
I forgot to show the bottom part of the leg where its adjustable for uneven ground. Its really simple, just another piece of 1"x3/4" about 10" long with a slot 10 " long and a bolt to tighten.
