What better project for us than to create a wooden RunnerDuck for your garden. This duck is great to put in any garden or yard. The good news is you don not have to clean up after it. The bad news is that it won not eat your slugs.
The design was inspired by actual crypts/mausoleums in a local cemetery. I took a trip down one afternoon and took a bunch of photos. I think some people wondered what I was doing. Then I looked at each of them and combined the elements I wanted. I think what made it look good is the false raised front with the steps. I did not want to extend a false floor through the whole piece, plus this gives our ghost extra floor room to move.
This is a wonderful project suggested by Ann one of our newsletter readers. We found an old and broken one to make a pattern from and then modified it a little. This project looks deceiving simple. There is a lot of tedium in getting the wing holes in the right place and the right weight. Once you get it right it looks great and is a real conversation piece.
