The idea for this came from a picture of a toy that I saw for sale on eBay that was from the late 1800’s. It’s made of plywood and dowels. My first attempt, which is hidden in the background, looked more like a cat than a monkey. So I plan to exchange the banana for a fish.

I love it. Great detail on the pants stripe, the little hat and uniform. Looks to be a lot of fun. Hilarious comment about the “cat” in the background. My first carving attempt was a little bear and my wife and daughters all commented on the “pig” I was working on. SIGH
