I carved this woodpecker out of one piece of basswood with my Dremel 7700 and a 3rd party bit. Once the body of the bird with all its features was complete I cut it from the block and wood burned for color. The feet are made from toothpicks, I added wood glue and saw dust to the feet to get the texture and finished by wood burning the feet. I then drilled two small holes in the bird and glued the feet in.I then made the tree trunk from the other half and wood burned it and then glued the bird back on to the tree.
