When it comes to fun wood projects, this incredible horse sculpture takes the cake. This fine equestrian sculpture takes the art of wood crafting to a whole new level. Usually, when you think of wooden sculptures, you think of a solid piece of wood carved into a shape or a figure. Usually, the sculpture is carved into the larger piece of wood using chiselling tools and special wood cutting knives that can cut the wood like butter. This wooden sculpture is a little bit different, instead of being carved out of a solid piece of wood, the sculpture is carved out of many smaller pieces of wood the size of golf tees.
It seems as though the artist carved many small pieces of wood which made up the bones of the horse and then connected them all to make them move as one through a series of gears. You can see that the artist can manipulate the horse's movements to make it look like it is galloping simply by turning a small crank at the bottom of the horse sculpture. The small gears rotate, and you can see how they connect to different pieces of the horse's body to put it in motion. The wooden sculpture truly emanates what it looks like when wild horses gallop through the fields with their hair blowing in the wind. It even makes a galloping sound like wild horses do when they are running freely.
A beautiful equestrian sculpture like this is one of those fun wood projects that would be awesome to give to someone who loved horses or animals as a present. This is especially true of someone who has an appreciation for how old engines and contraptions used to work in the past. It's not just something that is pretty to look at, but this wooden sculpture is also a great way to learn about moving parts and even the anatomy of how a horse moves. If you are interested in woodworking as a hobby of your own, maybe you would like to try and make a horse sculpture like this one for your pleasure. Woodworking is a beautiful art that has been passed down from generation to generation, and it is a fine skill to have. When you can work with wood, you can learn how to make some things on your own like furniture, utensils, dishes, jewelry, art and sculptures like this and even learn how to build an entire structure out of wood.
There are several benefits to using wooden in your DIY ideas and projects to do. Unlike glass and other types of interior accessories, wooden carvings can last for decades and even hundreds of years if properly cared for. All you need to do is wipe the wooden sculpture regularly to get rid of any debris such as dust that accumulates on the surface over time. It is also important to note that sculptures and decorations that are made from glass are also more prone to breakages, whereas wooden sculptures are less susceptible to breakage.
