Made out of pine and plywood scrap. I was going to make a bunch of them different sizes and shapes and then I realized I'd have to store them. So this is the first and probably the last. 打

Looks good! I made a couple last year. Yeah, theyre a pain to store. I bet theres a way to use hinges and magnets to make them store flat在ut I havent taken the time to sort it out

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Cute John!

I like the wood versions better than the gourd. By the time June rolls around, one will be full of nesting birds and the other will just be a gelatinous puddle on the front porch

That'll save you time over the years, but yes storage is always an issue.
Keep up the creative works!
great looking....like the face.

Therein lies the magic word (ok, two words)... you could always Matryoshka doll them.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

I did think of that Alex, but the stem on the top would be a problem.

Not if you hollowed it out... c'mon, where's that extra challenge.

Really nice...I may need to try these for my granddaughter in Arizona.
Thanks Tom, I forgot to mention I spray glued a piece of parchment paper to the inside of the front panel to hide and diffuse the little battery powered tea light.
