Hey Folks,

My shop has recently seen an infestation of wooden mice; entirely of my own doing.

Image

Every year around this time, I try to come up with some small ornament sized, seasonal gift. In the past years, it's been miniature reindeer (with googly eyes), nutcracker soldiers, or snowmen. This year, I was at something of a loss for an idea, when I stumbled across a Tim Yoder video on how to turn wooden mice. So I figured why not? The Mouse King was the major antagonist in The Nutcracker story, so why not make a few mice and have mass coronation of sorts?

Image

Currently, the only regal rodent is the one positioned on the lower shelf of the latest Limbert tabouret. His crown is a beer bottle cap punched out with a 1/2" conduit knockout punch, and then painted with metallic gold colored paint. I know it's hard to see, I'll try to post a better picture in the near future.

Image

And yes, as the card says, I am selling them for only $10 a piece. Sorry though, no internet sales. If you want one badly enough, you need to visit my shop and put $10 in my hand.

Cheers,
Tom

Hey Zulu,

Yeah, just click on the Tim Yoder link to watch his video.

Cheers,
Tom
