Let me introduce you to my friend ‘Whats’.
His last name of course is Trump. I doubt he is related to the real estate guy.
He has big feet and cannot see where he is going and falls down a lot!
But, his heart seems to be in the right place.
He is also quite helpful when we play euchre!

What! 3 3/8” tall? Wow, I was thinking this thing was life size and stood as a small “stool”. Hmm… I bet it could be done. 8-)

I haft to admit I was thinking taller as well, I think you should make a 6’ model kinda like the ol cigar indians either way it is cool

Very cool design but I have a question: is that a solid block or is the heart face a drawer?Love the feet!

It is a solid 2” square of walnut. Had not even thought of it as a bandsaw box with a drawer.
I’m wondering if some folks don’t know the purpose of this thing.
When playing euchre, it is used to keep track of what suit was bid.
At the beginning of each hand he is on his feet.
Then when a suit is bid he gets put down with the bid suit facing up so all can see and not have to ask “what suit was bid?”.
I’ll also let you in on a bit of a design secret. When setting it up, put the red and black suits opposite each other. This way when you look at any corner, you can instantly figure out what suits are on the opposite side.
