    My advice is pluck the feathers from the meat and skin. You're gonna have to do this anyway before you make anything.
    The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

However it is black with a white tip instead of white with black tip. Has anyone ever heard of an eagle that would have feathers...

        I just opened my big plastic feather box to pick out some feathers for a new fan. As I started going through the different prepared bunches, I noticed that a "critter" has eaten its way through my best feathers.

        It must have been a connoiseur of feathers,...

An I have made a wood fan handle that not knowing what I was doing beaded in Comanche stitch until I needed to add beads on the taper and then was lost. So I Finished it in bead wrap. Now...
