I worked at a local theme park this past summer, helping build their Halloween shows and mazes. One of the designers would sometimes visit a site, usually with a list of changes or additions to be made. None of these were especially bothersome – they were usually quite minor – and he made the changes easier to make by bringing a huge bag of candy with him to share with the crew.
The candy was such a memorable gesture that I wanted to do more than simply say “thank you,” so I carved this little red fox from basswood. It’s based on simple plans in the latest “Woodcarving” magazine, and might have taken me three hours of very pleasant time to carve and finish. Why a fox? Well, that happens to be how the designer pronounces his last name. ^^
