This is a ram made by my father-in-law. He would have loved to have been a part of the LJ community. He enjoyed making signs miniature shaker style furniture and these animals. I just wanted to share this project. I have not seen any of these and thought they would make for a nice idea for a project. I like the way he had carved out the horns and the texture and coloring he had achieved and then to mount it on a base with wheels. I would had liked to have seen how he made it. I wasn’t sure were to post this since I did not make it. Thanks for looking. Will

Now, that is just really cool!
His skills and love of the craft are certainly evident.
Man-o-man… the time he spent on that in texturing alone, must have been exorbitant.

Rivergirl, It’s 12” tall and 15” long. I only wish he had shown me how he made it!
