A Brand New Horse

I carved this horse for my friend's niece, Audrey. While similar to previous efforts, this horse has a slightly curved face and a flatter tail than others I've made. The wood is basswood finished with salad bowl finish and acrylic paint. The monogram is applied with a woodburner. The dark spot on the horse's left flank is a naturally occurring flaw in the wood.


  1. Love the horse John...Great fun...J

  2. Thanks, Firststeps! I love making these horses, and seeing them actually get played with is very rewarding. Your bird kuksas look great, by the way. Excellent work.
