For work I visited one of our suppliers. While I was in his Workshop he fell over something lying on the floor and nearly broke his nose. So I made this falling man for him. Its all Firewood :-) Still struggeling with a good finish…. I have just put some wax on.

Great piece. I’m reading g a lot about BLO around here and many LJ’s get really nice results. The woods color and grain really pop. Just a suggestion from a newbie, no need to take it seriously.

Really cool to see dry humor in wood. Might I suggest you round the bottom of the base to create w eeble wobble effect? Depending on his sense of humor may or may not work.

Great idea! Put it on the floor by his feet when you give it to him and see what happens.
Have you considered spray lacquer for a finish? It is very easy to apply from a spray can, dries very quickly and is readily available at the big box stores…

Where I worked, when someone fell like that, a chalkline in the shape of a body would soon appear.

Nice work!

I tried to make a roly-poly ( I hope its the right word, in German a Stehaufmaenchen ). I turned a half round base and filled it with lead. It didnt work because the man was to heavy.
Thanks for all the nice comments !
