Straight from fhqwhgads' workshop...

I built a couple more of these gnome doors recently. They measure about 7-8 inches high, and about 5-6 inches wide. I used some walnut for the accents on this one, and I liked it so much I kept this one for myself. I told the neighborhood toddlers that there's a gnome that lives inside there, and one of them swears that he's seen the door open before.

I don't like gnomes, and I think the way people "kidnap" them is funny, but these are cool.

Very nice indeed.

Hail Fhqwhgads!

I like the little mailbox off to the side.
That doors needs a knocker so the kids can check to see if the gnome is home. I bet he is usually away on business.

Nice work,

I want a full sized door like that...

By the way... you need a little red flag on the mailbox so the gnome knows when he has mail...

That has got to be one of the coolest things that I've seen in a long time. You could sell those things by the truckload.

I appreciate all the comments. I have actually sold one of them, to a member of TFP. (I needed donation money). I have thought about selling them before, but I'm not even sure what I would charge... A friend of mine runs a booth at a RenFest, and I'm sure he'd put a couple out if I asked... hmm...

A little magical doorway into a fantasy world of the imagination is a wonderful conception to materialize. The execution, as art/craft, looks impeccable.

That's great! You should definitely have your friend put some up in his Ren fair booth. I can see them going quick at an event like that.

I really admire your craftmanship, fhqwhgads, and I like the design of the little house - the mail box is a particular nice touch
I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy.
I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

I see about a dozen threads in Artwork and about the same in Photography where you've posted "very nice. thanks for sharing" or "very cool. nice job". Are you trying to boost your post count?? I'd much rather read a post where you shared your opinion about something than read a post where you simply hit ctrl-v.
