Picture of How to make wooden feathers
Painted wooden feathers made of pine. You can make them any size, but these are approximately 10" x 3" x .75". I made these at TechShop San Francisco (www.techshop.ws). These are great for using up scrap wood.

Step 1: Cut your wood

Cut your wood into the approximate length of the feathers you'd like to make. I used a chop saw, but you can also use a bandsaw, table saw, jigsaw or whatever you like.
