I have made these with strip of wood under joining them together, I thought it would be neater with dowels, I like the result. Holes where made on the drill press with vise clamped down and a stop for second hole. I just used the edge of the vise for the first hole. To assemble the body I cut a strip of wood the thickness I wanted the spacing and ten cut it into little pieces, I may have used a drill press vise to hold it vertically, two spacers between each one. use ca glue for each rib as you assemble it, The ca glue flows right in, I added some to the other side later. Trim the dowels flush and glue wood to each end, draw shape and cut on bandsaw. The first picture was the prototype I made first, For the gifts I used paduck for the head and tail. Would like to see some made with exotic woods that a lot of you use. Easy, quick, and Christmas is coming.
Thanks for looking and comments are appreciated.
