I designed this hardwood wren to use up some hardwood floor blocks that were removed from our house. It seemed a shame to just dump them. I have now coming to the end of the 90 odd that I had. Each wren wass made from one block with the addition of the egg and beak that are made from box wood. I now make them from sapele wood.
The wren is finished with several coats of acrylic varnish, the body having a flat finish whilst the painted eyes and beak are picked out with gloss.
I also supply a small beechwood mounting fixture so the wren can be mounted onto a twig for example if this is preferred to having it free standing.
The wren is approximately life sized.
The wren is available for free delivery worldwide for £39.
