Abbie’s Homemade Bunny Puzzle for Christmas

This is one of my little girl Abbie’s Christmas presents. I finished it yesterday. I slipped and cut my finger and nail on the scrollsaw blade…my first bad cut. I hope she likes it. It’s darn near unbreakable because the wood I chose, Makore, is so dense. I finished it with linseed oil.

Heirloom organic fruits and vegetables generally are more nutritious and more flavorful. Additionally, there is a huge variety in nearly every type of fruit or vegetable that isn’t to be found on grocery store shelves. By leaving food production to corporations and retail entities who, compared to what is available to the independent home grower of today, offer a narrow range of choices due to logistical considerations and profit-driven motives, people are missing out on the wonderful selection of foods available in nature.

If you are looking for more choices, consider Seed Savers Exchange, for example. They offer 25,000 different seed varieties. Why not grow your own? It isn’t terribly hard.
