3D moose head

3D moose head

Had some fun in the workshop this weekend making use of a leftover piece of plywood.

The moose head mounts on the plaque provided with the plan but I thought it would be fun to split a block of wood and mount it that way. There’s a couple ways to go about making the moose. One way is to cut away all the parts and then fit them all together. Which is a fairly straight¬†forward process until you get to attaching the antlers to the head parts. The designer of this plan choose to use small joiner parts to accomplish that. Now with hindsight, I would suggest attaching the antler parts to the corresponding head part for a good, long lasting fit.

I haven’t painted this one yet but I’ll probably give it a white wash and sand off the edges for a rustic country look. I sell this¬†plan in the online store and its available as a paper plan or a PDF download. If you make one, send along some pictures!

Below is a short video on some tips to sue during the building process.
