Saw some of these on Pinterest, made some for my brother in law who is a keen sailor with his own yacht, when Nana Bear saw them, I had to make some for our house,

They are about 12 inches long, but can be any size you want depending on what scraps you have to hand,

Made out of scrap pallets and easily found junk items, bottle caps for eyes, electrical wire for joining, soda cans for face detailing, old light bulb, craft acrylic paints, panel pins for teeth etc.

It's entirely up to you what junk you use, I am always on the lookout to see what rubbish I can reuse.


Thanks for looking, best wishes Nick

Hey Nick, these are pretty cool.
Congrats on the ability to see something arty and be able to recreate them. 
The "repurpose, recycle, reuse" ethos is also credit-worthy.

Yes those are great, very fun. Best for adults but could put them in a frame that has a clear plexyglass front (kind of like a narrow shadowbox) to keep kids safe from touching/playing with sharp edged wall decor too.

What a cool project build. I really like them well done. This forum filled with really awesome wood workers and artists. I learn so much from the folks on this forum.
