Wooden Hedgehog

This lovely little hedgehog is one that my dad has carved out of a piece of pine wood – the denser variety – a lovely blonde wood. He starts by cutting out the basic shape from a block and then using a knife and then then chisels of various sizes. The pickle area is then stained and the face painted fallowed by a layer or two of yatch varnish.

I am going to attempt to make some of these myself – I have made them before but they always have wonky noses!
