My dad was pruning one of our hedges and I noticed that one particular branch had a most interesting curve to it. I whipped out my trusty whittling knife and my trusty pair of clippers and had at it. After a few hours and several minor injuries to myself(mmm, tetanus-alicious) this little fellow was completed. He's carved out of one solid piece of wood, no glue was used except to attach his eyes. And I gave him his little tummy by just leaving on a layer of bark.
