MANGER SET
(Snowy scene)

Of the over 250 wood pieces, that I have carved over the
years, the Manger Set is my Pride and Joy.

The entire set is constructed out of redwood .  The cresch is made out of 1/2" redwood, and stands about
14" high.  It was given a splash of gray wash, to
give it a weathered appearance.  The base, which measures  about 28" across, and 16" deep, was made
out of 3/4" redwood

The human figures stand about 5" to 6" tall.  Redwood is 
a flesh-colored wood, so they already have a natural look
to them.  The figures were sanded lightly, and highlighted
with cherry stain, to bring out the detail.

The little Manger stands about 2" tall, and was shaped
from 1/2" redwood.  The Baby was carved out of 3/4"
redwood, and the blanket, was given a white/gray wash.

The Three Wise Men; the sheperds (3); and Joseph and Mary stand about 5" to 6" tall.

The little sheep (5ea.) stand about 3" tall and were given
a white/gray wash, for more realism.  Real sand covers
the entire base area; two reddish rocks were placed on
either end of the scene; the manger area was sprinkled
with real straw; and the final process, involved covering
the entire piece with powdered snow, to create a snowy
scene.

NOTE:  The photo for this scene, will be available at a
later date.
