Some butterfly carvings

I carved up a couple of box lids tonight for my next project. One Peacock Butterfly and one Hawk Moth. After this I'm going to be out of maple, so I'll have to get some more. And I'll work on the bottom half with my new router bushings! As for tonight, it was fairly straight forward. And everything was going well until I snapped off the antennae of the butterfly. I have not decided what I'm going to do just yet. I may just leave it or carve the other one to match. They were coming out so well as it was, Baa! Ah well. Live and learn. Rash seems to be better tonight. Though she still is sniffing and not eating much. I'm hoping in a couple more days she will be back to her old sel

Ethan, I have two words for you: SUPER GLUE! If you lost the snapped-off piece, level the space and glue on a larger piece and carve it down to match. Super Glue, the carver's answer to duct tape.

Hey, insects live short and dangerous lives so I'd just have to say that perhaps you could just leave it "as-is" and chalk it up as a combat loss. :)
