Old Fence Nativity Scene

I tore down an old fence but I couldn't stand to throw all of the wood away. It had such character. So I threw it in the corner of my workshop and forgot about it. Four years later, I found it again and thought I needed to make something with it. The dark wood is the old weathered wood. I did no sanding. All the painted pieces are balsa wood and painted. I am proudest of my awesome donkey.

    Did you happen to snap any photos of the process that went into making this? That would be fun to see. If not, be sure to snap some next time you make something. You should show off your skills!
