Hunters are usually the clients for Pointer and Quail weathervanes. This time I tried to make the design look like the fine engravings that are on the sides of quality firearms.
Tyler starts by cutting out the sides of the pointer then chasing in the necessary details.
The second half must be hammered identically for the 2 halves to fit together.
Once the sculpting is done, the halves are soldered together.
Smaller pieces ca be fun to make.
With all the components made it is time to assemble the weathervane.

Tyler is David’s apprentice. While Tyler may just be starting his journey, his work does not show it. His work is exceptional for an apprentice and the prospects for his future are bright.
