This scrap wood project started with my grandson. And wound up being one of his Christmas presents. We had no pattern, just pictures. A fun and rewarding project for a child… I haven’t posted anything in a while but I have made many things in between …

Awesome details! Colour contrast is a real match. Those stones make it more realistic.
