Just made this last week. New design and features.
This is the Prowling Lion. It measures 16” x 7” x 4”. It is made out of various hardwoods like all of my designs will be. Yours may not be the one shown, but will include exotic hardwoods from my wood bin. The body will more than likely be made out of Oak.
These will good great adding it to your animal collection.
My wife takes these toys to her school to have her kids play with them. She is just amazed at how much joy it brings to each child as these are rolled or pushed on the floor.
This Lion is made to look like he is ready to run down his next meal across the field. I made his motion to represent the real Lion. His mouth opens and closes manually. The tail in this design is something new I am experimenting with. It is free moving inside the body and held in place by the two thighs.
Finished with natural oil, hand rubbed and polished finish. Glued and clamped for assembly.
No metal screws or nails are used in the construction.
Order yours today and give or keep a gift that will last a lifetime.
This contains small parts adult supervision is suggested.
Every one of these designs are original and drawn up by myself. The patterns to each item is unique and created here at Hardwooddesignz.
