I've gone Batty!









I have many new wood toy projects in the works. With Halloween around the corner, I couldn't help but be inspired to make this batty guy. He's a whopping 14" high with an 18" wing span! I decided to be a little more advanced in my wood working this time round by using dowels, so everything can rotate and be disassembled or replaced at will. I used black stain and acrylics to help bring him to life.

Dustin> Thanks!
Jeremy> Good to hear from you. I hope you're well. I may make a couple bats at a smaller size for a Halloween release, but don't quote me on that. :)
