This is just one of many wood things I make. This started out as a yard ornament for a customer last
spring . the second pics is what I just did for a green house to help draw attention to there x mas trees .
It is the talk of the neighbor hood now. Plus I am getting orders for both the plain and the wild colored
ones. I kind of specialize in whirly gigs . When I started playing with wood back in 1992 I never
exoected a hobby to turn to full time work. I`m retired !! Any one here that would like to swap lies , I mean wood tales , give a shout .

Very interesting color choices in that second picture! :) I would definitely stop and take a look at their wares after seeing those critters out front.

Isn’t it interesting how hobby’s can be as much, if not more work than, well, work sometimes?
Looks like you’re having a lot of fun though!

Those antlers look like they could be a bit complicated getting together.

I like!

Nice work – glad to hear that you are able to make some money from your hobby, of course you know that once you start making money from your hobby, it is no longer a hobby – now it’s a job :-)) But I’m happy for you.

Haha LOVE the colours.
I can hear it now, “well, you drive down the road past the old Smithy Farm and then turn right at the green moose.

I made this year 8 raindeer and of course the red nosed one for my front yarn and your moose wood fit right in. I need to add another favorite to the list. Very Nice Project and I like the idea of flat storage. Thanks for sharing your idea.

Now Aginwood thats the closest thing I have seen to a moose this year. Travelled through Canada & Alaska in May & did not even see one. Nice job, great idea on the storage.

My whole street is full of yards with lighted reindeer that must be on sale at Home Depot. I’m so tempted to build a couple these flourescent mooses (meese?) just to break up the neighborhood monotony. lol
