Any mouse in the course of manufacturing hasn’t suffered, and not one piece of bread hasn’t been stolen by mice. All parts are made from an integral piece of a basswood. 20 sm

The bread bin is executed in the form of “lapot” a bast shoe – the ancient Russian footwear made of a bark of a birch.

This thing makes me want to get some cheese out of the ‘fridge and lock up the cat.

Lovely work my friend. I wish I could carve nearly that well.

Great work and a nice touch of humor Oleg. basswood is wonderful to carve. Birch bast shoes were also used a lot here in Norway in the past too. It’s interesting to see the Russian version.
