This is my favorite piece to date. It features an old stump a friend of mine begged me to take that I wasn’t really interested in. It sat in front of my shop for 2 years! I had a friend visiting last year that totally believes in fairies and asked me to build a fairy house for her garden. She said that fairy’s like to hide out in the V in the trunk of a tree and i immediately thought of the useless stump in front of the shop. So I got to work and came up with this fairy house complete with LED and incandescent lighting. I put way more into it than I had thought I would and didn’t want to part with it for the budget she had in mind, so I built her a much smaller house and kept this one for a future client!

I like all the variety and level of detail. Any chance you could get a picture of the lighting shining through the windows?

Kind of reminds me of an old neighborhood I once lived in …
You have talents that most of us can only envy … I just love this creation.
And, it just goes to show why we never throw away anything made of wood

This is a really cool project.

But I thought all fairies lived in a egalitarian utopia. Alas, there’s a high rent district in the realm of the fairies as well. I’m crushed :^P

Beyond doubt that is fantastic. I can see you spent a lot of hours do it and it is time well spent. :)
