I seemed to have gone through a period of having lost interest in going out into the shed. So to kick start myself I went and turned a pen then got on and finished the Nut Cracker soldier that I had started now I can’t get enough shed time and have another two turning projects on the go.
Anyway on to the completed soldiers.
Not my design but Colwin Way’s published in the Woodturner magazine. I did change what they are holding. The family wanted something like this so I made extras which have now been snapped up already.
The first photo shows many of the parts turned ready for assembly and painting
