I found some plans for this a while back and finally got around to building it. The plans were fairly vague but it gave me an idea with where to start. I used pine for most of it and cedar for the branches and the trunk. I just sprayed it with a clear coat when I finished. On the last picture I was gluing in the door stops so I built a little stand for it and set it upside down in there to install them. It was fairly tedious but I think it turned out pretty good.

Nicley done. I attempted this project before but it was way out of my skill level at the time. I may try it again sometime. Great job!
