This fella is about 2 feet tall. I understand that cutting trees in the winter means the bark may stay attached, so hopefully that will be the case. I drilled mostly 3/4 inch holes and carved tenons to fit all the pieces together. The carving was easy since it was done right after I felled the tree so the wood was very green. I just pressed everything together, so there are no screws or glue. Stick a red nose on there and call him Rudolph.

To help keep up with the Jones’, I’ve wanting to make a holiday “lawn deer”, like this for a few years now. Yours came out great!

Oh man, my kids are going to get wild with that ! And it’s cheaper than a real donkey. You just made the top of my todo list ;-) Thanks for sharing.
