I've been bored today so I took some pics of a few decoys. I have a bunch as I've been into it for quite some time. The first batch pictured are made of Music Grade Curly Koa. These eight decoys were made from two cants from the same tree. It was very expensive wood that came from Hawaii. It now runs $265.00 a board foot if you can find it. It might take a few years to find it if you know the right people. It took 2.75 Board Feet per each decoy. For those bad at math, that come to around $728.00 per decoy. That's just the wood. Take into account that it was green and had to be dried and then carved into decoys. There is about 25 hours labor into each decoy. Dealing with the curly wood is not easy. The grain of the wood changes from flat sawn to end grain every quarter inch. You have to rough them out and then go at it with abrasives to not get blow outs. It's a very slow process. If you are into ducks, you will realize that there are eight different species that were carved out. These are full size, exactly as in the real world.
