Another of my ill-fated Christmas gifts (this one for my mother) that sheer stubbornness brought to completion. Even tonight, one day before I have to gift them, I was gluing them back together. I’m not really sure what I might have done wrong to make these so incredibly fragile. I tried gluing with good wood glue and after several breakages switched to epoxy which also hasn’t managed to keep them together. I’ve never had such weak glue joins. If I made these again I would definitely use toothpicks to stabilize the legs, not just the antlers. I’m glad it’ll be out of my hands tomorrow!
Made from curly maple and a Sheila Landry design.
