My first Lumberjocks project.
My wife and I saw several versions of this mobile on our recent trip to Cambodia. I really liked the design, so I decided to make one for a Christmas present for my grandfather. He is the true craftsman in the family, so hopefully he can appreciate it, flaws and all. I did all the work with hand tools (except the drill press) and for some reason chose to make each of the four corners of the frame a different type of joint. I can chalk the whole thing up to a good learning experience.
The body is cocobolo, the frame and legs are cherry, and the head is some hardwood my dad had laying around that I don’t recognize. Very hard though, rough on the chisels.
