This Mallard Drake is quite regal as Terry has him in the alert pose. The detail in the head and tail feathers are quite good. He and the Mallard Hen make good companion pieces. He is life size at 13 in. long and 7 1/2 in. to the top of his head.
Welcome to Quack Shack Carvings! I, Rhonda,started this blog for Terry so that interested family and friends could see what he's working on and completed. He will be doing the carving I'll be blogging, computers are not Terry's thing.
Terry was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. His Dad worked on the Alaska Railroad so as a kid he was able to explore Alaska via the rail. His second favorite past-time is Fall Fishing for Silver Salmon on the Kenai River. We live on a lake; where we feed and enjoy watching the wildfowl. In 2006 he took a few duck carving classes and discovered a new passion. It has resulted in the pieces displayed here.
Terry's work schedule gives him the time he wants and needs to spend time carving. That's why in 2009 we spent the time and money to build a studio to work in. Pictures of it are posted in the blog.
Terry would like it if you became a follower of his carvings. Also click on any of the pictures to get a larger detailed version of the carving. Please leave comments as we would appreciate your feedback.
