  • A Big Day in Midgeton


    G’day All,

    as I have probably stated here before, for as long as I can recall I have been fascinated by man-made miniatures and that has carried over into my love of wood carving. On occasion I have attempted some smallish figures and during a clean-up a while back, discovered a bunch of ‘em in jars and pill bottles, And after a friend built me a box with a clear acrylic top and front I set about building my carvings into a little diorama which I then photographed and have posted here. hope you like them. The base of the box measures 13¾ inches square or for those of us forced to use those funny measurements 35cm square. And the clown is the tallest figure at a bit over ¾ inches or about 22 mm tall (don’t ask about kids or dogs)......I cheated a bit by buying trees, hedging and grass from a place that supplies railway modellers but everything else good or bad is hand-made. There is still much to be done as I have to fill the seats for the entertainment, have to carve some singers for the stage etc. But I now have a home for whatever other crazy little things I may make, instead of them laying around in boxes etc. I had a great deal of fun putting this together and I hope it gives everyone a bit of a laugh.

    Regards

    John

        John, That is so neat! I love the idea, and that you can continue to add to and enhance it as you like. It's like a continuing hobby in itself! Fun!

          Hey John, love this! I am a miniature enthusiast too, but I avoid the people because they are so darn hard! I bow to you, these are wonderful. Love the stone carver, but it is all wonderful!

              Great scene John, I admire your patience in doing those tiny figures. If I were to try something like that I'd use more Band-Aids than basswood...
