I want to Thank DaninVan for this idea.

It uses through mortice and tenon joinery (wedged), and the dirty legs were made with a torch after carving toe nails into the feet. On the back side I added a cute little bum, and finished with shellac. This was a fun little project...that has character.

Way better'n mine, Gary! Now I'm gonna plagiarize your version... :)
I really like the tanned legs; big improvement over my original one.
The tush is a winner!
One thing I did was round over the top edge to avoid cutting into leg circulation for a little kid sitting on it.
Mind you a cushion would do the same thing.

I really liked Dan's version, but you've added some finishing touches that make it even better.

Nice whimsical work, Gary! I like it, 4 toes and all.

A few years ago a good friend of mine for over 50 years had a leg amputated just below the knee. His sisters and a few friends were in the hospital room when he asked if I would make a prosthetic for him. Knowing that his sense of humor is like mine I said, "Sure, which side do you want the big toe to be on?" He laughed for 5 solid minutes and every time I saw him he brought it up and laughed again. :grin:
