I made this one for the daughters room. Had some nice yellowheart that checked a bit, notice the cracks. Walnut antenna, Ebony feet with tiger maple eyes,
Must admit I really took the wrong aproach with eyes. I really wanted to use some Holly or Aspen… I ended up just drilling a small hole pupil, adding black enamel, but it chipped out. If I had a forstner bit that small would have been great.
I wasnt about to look for ebony dowel… maybe i need a lathe ha, the wife would kill me. Oh well… live, learn and do better next time!
FYI – If you have a hole saw set this would be super easy. However, all mine was scroll saw.
