My wife has a collection of nutcrackers from all over the world. She thought it would be a good idea for me to build her one too. So I got a few pieces of wood and turned my version of a nutcracker. I call him the Alabama Nutcracker. I used Cedar and Poplar woods. Kids water-based paints, and clear gloss poly over it. The beard is from the tip of a Alabama White tail deer. Hair is from the mane of a European Moose. The last picture is of the Alabama nutcracker with the rest of the more elite group on the mantel.
