I built this nutcracker for my niece who is on the Columbia Quad Squad roller derby team.
To get the body diameter I wanted it took 4 3/4” boards glued up. The plan I used called for turning then cut the head off and bandsaw the slot in the center, I split one board on the bandsaw , cut the slot before turning I think it was easier and made it stronger. I turned tenons on the legs.
Nothing fancy, maple, and painting isn’t my thing but I hope she likes it.
