I am posting this so my step-mom and dad can have a look at what I was up to today;)

This is my dream for over 6 years. Something called Brantlers. Making fun with nature and taking it out-of-bounds. Antler + Branches. My website is still in progress.

Today I have been working on more “little” versions of the bigger vision I have in my head. My small prototypes are up-cycled from “Jenga”  game pieces. (I also made lots of rings out of Jenga … I called them Ringas .. remember, “Ringa, the Red Nose Reindeer”?)

At first I tried to make Brantlers from clay but quickly I realized I had no idea how clay worked. (That was last year.) Then I thought, why not try to carve the from wood — I am much more comfortable with power tools. And make small versions to test what I want. They are small and easy to carve. (Note, that I love my Dremel tool!)  So I have been working on the larger versions … but they look and feel much different in a larger version. So I am working out the kinks with my carving tools.

The “big version” will cost me $2,000 dollars to have my prototype made. So while I wait, I make my own, smaller, folk-art versions.

I have been working on the website in hopes that some day I have something to show the world. In the meantime, I will sale my smaller versions.
