Used a piece of scrap 5/4 oak. Drum sander to create nice radius between legs. Quick finish with Johnson's past wax. Did learn that the grain should probably go horizontal like the original pic. One of the trunks almost broke off - had to re-glue. All told about 5 hours work - time well spent teaching middle-school grandson to use bandsaw, drum sander and drill press.

Thanks - I was looking for a nice weekend project to share with my grandson. We made two using a bandsaw. Added a twist - sawed them in half length-wise, hollowed out one side and glued in a rare-earth magnet (recovered from a dead hard drive). Glued the halves back together and now we have 2 fridge magnets or a pair of bill holders!

A scroll saw would be much faster than a hand saw but either way works.

When I was little I used to have one of these but it had 8 holes in the top for pencils or crayons or whatnot. Could be a gift idea for a little one

Is it for a kiddie?
