Snowman Made From Logs

I wanted to make something for Christmas out of trees or logs from our property.

I cut down trees and limbs ranging from 1" to 4".

Used a chop saw to cut the limbs in to slices - anywhere from 1" thick to 3" thick.

This is what the bucket looked like full different sizes cut from the limbs.

Another example of the slices and the thickness. I used the chopsaw and sawed off a end on each side of the slice to make it stand up and to glue and balance the next size slice on top of each other.

Glued the slices together with Gorilla glue, painted eyes, nose, mouth and buttons, added a fabric scrap for scarf - done! They are about 8 inches in height.

I made 15 in about 4 hours - including cutting down the trees! Think they came out great - ready for holiday gifts!
