Full Moon Saloon

Good morning,

My Honey and I have several favorite "toy" stores.  They are stores that sell wood, tools, yarn, knitting needles, dolls, well, you get the idea....   We are both enablers;  we enable each other in our favorite hobbies.

Recently we were shopping for some new items that My Honey wanted to work on a clock he is making.  While he was paying for those new "toys" at our local Woodcraft store (that's My Honey in the upper left of this picture, wallet in hand) I took some pictures of a display there.
When I got home I checked on line to find there are directions so that you, too, can make this. 
This whole project is just darling and must have taken forever to make. 
You have to look at each section to appreciate this thing so here are some pictures to enjoy:
Is this project fun or what! 

If you want to make it  yourself:

There is no way I could make it, but I sure enjoyed seeing it.  Have you see this anywhere before?

Very best,

What amazing detail! The characters were very interesting. I don't think that I would have the patience to make something like that but i did enjoy looking at it!
Love Di ♥

Wow! Fun to look at, but make it??? Definitely a project for a retired person with lots of time on their hands!

Wow, all those small details! I am afraid it would not look like this even if I bought the book :) Perhaps my husband could make something like that.

A friend of mine who was in Japan when I was there does this kind of wood carving. He does some remarkable work.

What a fun piece of work! It does look like it would take a lot of time, and you'd really have to enjoy carving to undertake a project like this. It might be fun to get the book just to browse though.
