Aircraft carvings

Maker: Pete Morro

Location: St. Catharines, Ontario

I’ve been a woodcarver since 1995. I started with songbirds and my wife painted my work... until she “retired”. She decided this was my hobby, not hers. As a retiree from the RCAF I started carving aircraft, even joining an international group called “solid model memories”. One our members has carved 100 aircraft models flown by the RCAF to celebrate our 100th anniversary on April 1, 2024. The tools I use are bandsaw, belt sander, Foredom, Dremel, a variety of chisels and knives, and a proportional scale (I prefer my carvings between 6” and 8” long). The wood is butternut and eastern red cedar.
