My sister is a sucker for Christmas kitsch. She saw one of these at an antique market and decided her brother needed a project.
I had a ton of fun making it and trying to get the proportions somewhat correct. Just walk through the woods for material and use a drill with a spade bit. I used a drawknife to help with the joints. I haven’t glued it yet because I’m going to transport it, although I am VERY tempted to stand it up in the truck bed fully assembled just to see the reaction driving down the road.
This would probably be a great project to make with the kids. They could make the nose, eyes, ears and dress it up. Ho ho ho! (Be careful about putting it out too early. It is deer season.)
-- If a tree falls in the neighbor's woods, and no one is there to hear it...can you take it home, mill it and turn it into a coffee table without your neighbor making a sound?
