I've also been busy drawing up some little wooden animal designs. Rodrigo helps me sometimes in the evenings to make them. I cut them out on the scroll saw and he sands them. I really like the little wooden hen (pictured with the baby doll) and we have a whole flock of chicks for her in the works! I've also mixed up a nice beeswax polish to finish them after they are painted with non-toxic paints and/or enhanced with wood burning.
Here is a herd of hedgehogs hanging out on the sander, waiting to be finished.
I'll try to start some of my projects for the boys' Christmas presents this week, and I'll post about them next weekend (hopefully). I have so many ideas! My Christmas-Idea Binder is getting more and more full!
