My mother’s family is all Swedish so Dalecarlian horses are popular among much of my family. They come in several colors but my family seems to prefer the red ones. After buying some padauk recently from Inventables I decided that wood this color might be good for making some Dala horses. I made this batch of four, experimenting with various scoring/engraving options. This isn’t the best photo, but you get the idea.
I should probably try adding the traditional painted details.
