Well it’s not really a folded crane, but I’ve always been intrigued with the origami folded crane. For some time now, I’ve told my wife that someday I would like to make a crane out of wood. Well here it is 5 jigs, 3 patterns and about 20 hours of carving and sanding later. I’ve made a few more and the time to make them gets progressively shorter.
The overall dimensions are: 19”W, 15” H, 10” D
The base is Cherry and Ash, the supports are Bubinga and the Crane is Soft Maple.
I felt really fortunate to find a piece of cherry for the base that had the right bark inclusion to house the supports
. Thanks for looking and as usual any and all comments or suggestions are welcome.
