For awhile now I have wanted to get out to the garage and begin working on making some toys for the kids. Melissa's mom got me a book for Christmas that had some good ideas for toys. This week I got started on a couple of projects. I am not done with anything yet, but I just wanted to share my progress.
Here are a few pictures of my progress so far:
I have had this wood for 5 or 6 years now. It was passed down from Melissa's grandfather. It was wood that he had collected over many decades. Some of it dating back to the farm that he grew up at. They are all different sizes but most are at least 7 feet long. I'm excited about finally putting some of it to use.
Here is the front view.
I still need to add a tail and ears (both using some leather scraps).
I just thought it would be fun to share some of my progress. I still have plenty of work to do. I have a few more ideas for future projects. Probably two or three more and I will consider the goal done.
