Very nice job. Did you use multiple wood stains or does it just look that way on the photo? I plan to make on of these for my nieces before next Christmas. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours!

Dan, The wood is pine 2X’s as this was a proof of consept project. I stained it with a medium oak stain with out sealing the wood, then used a spray varnish.

Arrdee, Regarding reducing dust – but not woodchips – have you looked at the Arbortech Woodcarver PRO-4 ?
The picture shows the cutter in a grinder, but is sold separately over here, by Axminster for example.
Oh! and Wooddolph ! Wonderful! I love puns.
