In this easy one day workshop students will turn a cute Owl Plaque just in time for Christmas.

Simple tools and techniques will be used to create a very satisfying project. Each student should complete 1 or more Owl’s out of Western Red Cedar or Oak. The finished Owl will be around 7″ across with a 4″ diameter body.
