…and the goose is getting fat.

Image

I know, I’ve used this once before, but the image of these little geese ornaments has been on my mind every year since I first saw them. So this year, I’ve tried to reproduce them from some scrap pine that I’ve had lying around, seemingly forever.

The woodworking is dead simple, but the painting is something that I still need practice with. Hopefully they’ll pass muster, as each of my friends and loved ones will be getting goosed for Christmas. :wink:

Cheers,
Tom

Greets, Tom -

Perhaps few people realize that goose was, and perhaps is, the preferred main Christmas dunner dish for many. An interesting anecdote is that there is no white meat on a goose. Be sure to save the goose grease for simmering with you sour krout.

Haven't run into any. But I remember we used goose grease on the cork of the saxaphone mouthpieces when I was in Hi School band. (grin)

Tom , pretty little things.

How tall are they, they look to be small 2-3 inches.

Hey Duan,

They're just under 4" tall. The pieces are 1/4" thick.

Cheers,
Tom

Those are sweet Tom.

I used to make little bunnies for easter.

I had a template which made them a piece of cake to make. I had bunnies all over my yard. The kids loved them

Tom,
Thanks, I may try a few for some friends.
I will probably go for the minimum paint.

Thanks again
Duan
