I had come across oak pallets, and I thought the four by fours could be useful. So I disassembled the pallets and planned down the four by four material. I then glued enough material together, and began carving my wife’s Buddha. This Buddha is 22 inches across the knees, and 14 inches high. The final project outcome, took me a grand total of 40 hours. I found that the oak was difficult to work with and in the future, wouldn’t use it again.

I think this is a terrific project all the way through!

Very well done, and I also like the original design and the use of reclaimed wood!
