I saw a few of these and thought it would be a fun project for my little friends. The hardest part to making this was the partner the arched curves. I sketched it by hand then cut it out and sanded it into what I thought was right.

Cute. Is the door just sitting up against the rock or did you attach it in some way?

I’m still laughing. That is great.
Being short myself I can appreciate that size door. I might do some myself.

Nice touch to the garden.

That’s great – can you imagine the reaction of little kids finding a tiny door in the side of a rock or tree :D
