The full-sized replica of the 50 cal. Blackpowder Hawkin Rifle,Powder Flask, pair of Blackpowder Pistols and the Bowie Knife are carved from walnut and inlaid with basswood. This is the only set I carved of this size. All of the hammers move on the guns and each of the guns come apart. In addition, the back sight on the rifle moves up and down.
In addition to waterfowl decoys, I also have other wood carvings for sale, including rifles, butterflies, and songbirds.
The butterflies, flowers and miniature
flying ducks are carved from basswood
and painted with oils.
The feather pins are carved from basswood and painted in acrylics.
The bases for the miniature flying ducks are walnut and the base for the miniature flying Blackduck has miniature leaves carved around it.
The 1/2 size replica of the 50 cal. rifle set is scaled down from the actual set of guns. They are also carved of walnut, inlaid with basswood.
Wood Carvings for Sale from Robert Wright
The ultimate goal for all the wood carvings seen here is to appear lifelike. The hard work, time, and detail that goes into both painting and carving should cause people to think that the carving is in fact a real waterfowl, bird or gun.
The feather carvings are lifesize duck
feathers carved from basswood or
tupelo. Carved very thin and textured
top and bottom. Then painted with oil
