Thanks everyone for the positive comments both here and by PM.  They'll help me work a little harder on it to make it look good in a final stage.

Got the other side carved out last night, hollowed out both of the insides to its final hollowing this morning......removing about a third of the weight again.

And, I started burning the feather pattern into each feather.

The matchup between the two sides isn't going to be perfect, but I really don't mind.  If I don't like it when I hinge it, I will just carve a little more away here or there to make them match up better.

I'm done wood burning on side 1, and side 2 is about 1/4 completed.  Probably another 5 hours of burning I would say.  Hopefully less!   :rofl: 

I still think my first paint coat will be brown spray paint, so I can be sure to get down into every little crevice.
