Applejack's Apple Harvest by renegadecow Applejack's Apple Harvest by renegadecow
No pony appreciates a good days work more than Applejack. She loves the hard-earned life so much that she doesn't even look like she's working at all! Of course, not everybody is gifted with the talent for apple bucking. It's also an untold mystery as to how she can send each and every single apple into a bushel with nary a one touching the ground. But I think her ever faithful, canine companion Winona has rooted that secret out. That or she's on the lookout for bad apples.
The figures, stand, tree and bushel are carved out of Philippine mahogany while the gears and apples are made out of Narra hardwood. They're painted in enamel and protected by clear flat lacquer. Applejack stands at 5 1/8" tall (with her hat down) while the entire complete piece measures 11 3/4" high, 9 1/2" long, and 3 1/2" wide. It took 161 hours to complete.

I'm sorry, but this has long since been sold and I'm not making copies. I take commissions though if you're interested in something else.

So that's where it went! Could have spared me months of worrying not having heard from the person that bought it. Anyhow, you wouldn't believe how much your words mean to me and am more than ecstatic that my craft is well received. I may not be able fulfill that one wish of yours, but I may as well let you know now that you can expect at least one more from me, and a very special one at that.

Thanks! Didn't formally take engineering, though I did consider it back in high school. I'm more of a tinkerer really.

Sandpaper was used on practically everything, but only to smoothen surfaces. Prior to that they were whittled by a chisel.

I under stand, an artist should never have to duplicate their art work if they don't want too.

Ah, I love how you've incorporated the apple orchard into the carvings on the box. I also find it very impressive that you've given movement to an otherwise stagnant figurine by making AJ's mane and tail look as though they've been swept up in a breeze.

Given how long these things take to make, I'd much rather make original pieces every time than just copies.
