started working on the acorns, but something feels off even though my calipers and measurements from the drawing tell me all is correct, and I have some room for error on the nuts. So, I worked around them and will come back to them in a few days with fresh eyes and see if I can find the solution. If anyone sees something I don’t, let me know!

i’m about the farthest from an expert but i would like to say that it seems to me that the shells are a bit longer than most acorns that i’ve seen. i think if you were to shorten them up a little bit more than they would be a little more proportional. also there’s no such thing as 2 being the exact same size so you should just go wild and give each one their own character! hope it helps for what it’s worth. very creative idea!

I am just impressed with your vision. Far beyond me to point out a flaw.

Thanks guys, something does not seem right, just not sure what! cdaniels, as I carve them to shape they will become less ‘long’, and more individualized. But that may be the problem, the present distortion may be getting to my eye, thanks for that suggestion, it may be the key to solving this. I will work on their length and shape when I start back on it in a few days.
