The Latest Work of My Handsome Carpenter

Oh my goodness - I do not know where I have been hiding lately, but it's been FOREVER since I've posted anything! So much has happened, good, bad, & ugly but it's been a great couple of weeks. Even the bad & ugly give me the opportunity to learn a little more & hopefully begin to trust the Lord a little more. But that's a topic for another post. THIS post is all about Michael's toy making. He has made a couple really fascinating things lately.
This is an elephant puzzle.
I think it's about the coolest thing I've ever seen & no, I don't think I can solve it.
This little guy is going to multiply & become at least two birthday
presents for family members who have a soft spot for pachyderms.
And this is Old McDonald's Farm. I think Michael is a genius.
Each little animal & the barn are a puzzle.
I watched him cut some of these out with his scroll saw.
I had no idea how he had to think ahead with where the blade would be
& how to get around corners, etc.
I was fascinated.
And now that your interest is piqued, come back soon for a pic of Michael's
most recently completed project!

Wow, I think your hubby needs to go into the woodworking business! Seriously, he could set up his own etsy shop and make a killing with these adorable toys!

Wow! He's really good, Mary Ann? Has he considered selling the things he makes? The farm is so cute!
