Here are two of my new decoys that I just carved the other day. I started carving old time decoys from the 50’s-60’s out of cedar. I find them on the Internet at auction and try and match them up as close as I can. I’ve had people look at them and ask were I found them. It’s a lot of fun and will be doing many many more.

So what do you guys think?

Lots of charater in those dekes! If your looking for more to carve here are some 50's decoys given to me by my uncle:

The carver is from the LSC area. We used to use these when I was a kid!

OH yeah, I forgot about the spoke shave. It is smaller. I don't have one. I should get one. Where, is the question. Some catalog or on the internet. What are you using for wood? I used to use old telephone poles just like the old timers did. They were Western White Cedar. That is hard to come by now. Are you carving those single piece?
