me proudly introduce my very first hand carved duck decoy…
‘Duck Decoy Carver to be’
many times have you thought you would really like to be able
to carve a duck decoy
like the ones you see illustrated in the magazines and displayed at the
craft shows but you didn’t know where to start?
you start to search for information, only to find so much, but none of
it relevant to a beginner, especially one who has never carved wood
so have I. So I decided to do something about it and
Illustrated Guide for Beginners to help you start to make your first
carved duck decoy
why did I decide to do this…
years ago when I was a child, (OK, I’m not getting any
younger) I really wanted to help my father when he was doing woodwork
– nothing fancy, shelves and similar items - but I loved the
smell of the cut wood and seeing an article being created from a
shapeless block, and I wanted to do it too!
my mother said that wasn’t something a girl should do
(haven’t times changed now, I’m glad to say) and I
turned my hands to other craft projects such as knitting, cross-stitch,
and tapestry, which - I have to say - I still enjoy.
I got older I did make shelves, and I’m a whizz at assembling
flat pack furniture, but never until recently did I think about really
creating something from wood. But then …
bought an ornament recently – a duck – and my
younger daughter said “Oh, another addition to your duck
looked round, and realized I do have quite a variety of ducks which I
have collected in my travels – some decorative and some
yes, and those two beautiful duck needlepoint designs (completed some
time ago but still not assembled into cushions – I
don’t enjoy that part of the job!).
that’s not to mention that fantastic book (OK, books, lots of
them) with the designs I want to stitch. But,
that’s going off the subject …
A Hand Carved
Duck Decoy is a Work of Art
started thinking, and remembered the time some 12 or more years ago
when I first saw a real hand
carved duck decoy …
was on a business trip to Connecticut, USA, and had a couple of hours
before I needed to drive to Boston and catch my plane back to the UK
(mind you, nobody told me how bad the traffic was round Boston, so I
nearly missed the plane, but again, another story).
I went for a walk round Mystic Seaport, and in the shop there I saw two
fantastic life-size hand
carved ducks. Oh, did I want to buy
one of them, but it was 6 days before Christmas, money was tight, and I
hadn’t bought half the Christmas presents, so I talked myself
out of it, but didn’t forget.
years later I was back in Mystic, money in my pocket – and
they didn’t have any of them in the shop, and nobody could
tell me where to find any of them!
a moral here, think it goes something like “never
off until tomorrow what you should do today”!
So, back to
today, and my research into Duck Decoys
ducks as I sometimes find myself describing them.
have found the most fantastic handcarved
ducks, learnt a lot about their history, and the
people who carve them.
I didn’t find anywhere was an eBook that would help me
discover if I actually had the skills
to carve a duck decoy. Or that would show me how to do it
without having to buy a lot of expensive woodworking equipment before I
could even try!
I’m in the UK, and almost everything I found was in the US.
a lie, I did find one eBook about wood carving,
and I bought it. But it was factual, short and to the point,
totally impersonal and written by somebody who obviously had never
carved anything himself, and certainly not carved a duck decoy.
And not an illustration in the whole 30 odd pages!
What’s more, it only had a 30 day money back guarantee
– not much time in which to test it out!
So, I decided
to learn how to do it, and write a Beginners Guide to Carving a Duck
Decoy eBook myself…
How to Carve a Duck Decoy book is unique because
it is the first beginner’s guide which has been written by a
beginner for beginners!
to Carve a Duck Decoy book is the result of many
many weeks of research into this fascinating subject and, most
result of me sitting down with a piece of wood and a craft knife and
“having a go”.
focus is strictly on someone like yourself who is just beginning to
learn the skills required to carve
a duck decoy, but doesn’t want to have
to make major financial outlays on equipment before they can begin.
a combination of the facts you need to know, together with step-by-step
pictures - and my running commentary - of my first attempt to carve a Mallard Duck Decoy!

P.P.S. I was so
proud when I completed my first duck. I called in
to visit my younger daughter and her family on my way home with my duck
(his name is Bill - silly habit, I know, but I have a habit of giving
names to things and I did have a bit of a struggle carving his bill)
wrapped in my coat. My youngest granddaughter, Leah, aged two
and a half, took one look at him and said “It’s a
duck” and cuddled and stroked him - I thought I’d
never get him back. A very enjoyable
experience. Order your Learn How to Carve a Duck Decoy
