Well, last night we wrapped the first present for this year. It’s been a busy one too, and although I didn’t get everything done that I was hoping to….. I did get some really fun ones done. Hopefully the kids will have as much fun playing with them over the years, as I have had in making them the last months.
This set is for my 3 year old daughter who loves elephants :) I was going to make a zoo playset, but this is pretty close I think. There are some grey blocks not pictured that will give some “fencing” for the animals. The animals are cut from 3/4” maple. Then I put my new flex cut knives to work at attempting to learn how to carve. :) It’s nothing fancy, but I am really happy with how a little cutting can transform a “block” animal to life. So these are wrapped and under the tree.
Merry Christmas, and the warmest wishes to all this holiday season!
I will post a few toys now, the ones that are for relatives that do not (or can not) check the site….. the rest will be posted after the holidays.
