Celebrate the wonder of Christmas by hand-crafting a traditional nativity ... with a twist. All you need are some chunks of basswood and some basic crving tools, along with our step-by-step carving, painting and finishing instructions. Our 16-piece hand-carved North Woods Nativity naturally features Baby Jesus, who rests in a hollowed out tree trunk lined with pine boughs, Mary and Joseph, and the three wise men, who have traveled far ... on snowshoes and skis. Three pine trees in varied sizes gently bow and sway in a make-believe breeze. A raccoon, a beaver, a mountain goat, a big horn sheep, a moose, a goose and a grizzly bear gather to complete the woodland scene. 80 pages.
