Had some great fun creating this little man .
After seeing Gerardo post this little guy based on Cueballs I just had to make one and I needed a new helper in the shop anyway .
He is a pretty big help already as you can see and pays attention but needs his breaks ( PIC #3 ) but then is right back to work.
He was born from a fir tree and is quite wiry looking at his joints but also a bit square and never takes of his hat .

Glad to see you got some help. But I wood watch him close. Those fir guys have a tendency to needle some folks. And they seem to stand around in the same place for long periods of time :)

Great looking shop assistant! Gives new meaning to “Be there or be square!”

John
I always watch these fir guys being a pine guy myself but I can still outrun most trees even at my age .

Dean
You said it and he has a buddy looking for work maybe you could hire him.

Paul
He is a blockhead but he will learn real fast or else he will turn to chips .

Candy
He has a great smile and that get’s to me every time too bad he is not a girl !

This makes my day. You must have him doing all the work since you do all the thinking.
I could be your 9 to 5 helper if I can find some fast transportation back and forth. Does it pay good with benefits? LOL.

I am in the shop at 7am at the latest and asfar as transportation goes dog sled is pretty cheap .
The pay is fresh air a little cold at times and benefits are all the sawdust you want for free but we should have a beer together SOOOON .

Klaus, you made me laugh again. We may have to do a little more bargaining. Dog sled? Those don’t come with heaters. Or do they now? Ha ha. Take care.

He looks real happy there in your shop Klaus. He will probably learn a lot from you and I wouldn’t be surprised if he were to start posting his own projects in the near future. You could also send him down to Alabama to visit Grizz’s puppets when he gets some time off.

Looks like you worked him to hard in that one pic. Unless, he may have got into the liquor cabinet. Nice and fun. I like fun. It’s very healthy to laugh.
