October 2024 class is now full.

Carve a Bellamy Eagle

We’ll be using patterns made from an original John Bellamy eagle to reproduce this elegant form.
Carved Footstool

John Bellamy carved these painted pine eagles at his shop in Kittery, Maine in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We’ll be using patterns made from an original to reproduce this elegant form. This is a great intro carving project, not needing lots of tools or material. All materials are included and grinding and sharpening of tools will be covered.
