Viking Long Ship

     Due to learning about all things Medieval lately, I got inspired to make a Viking long ship.  Not a model, but a toy that the kids could play with and even (although this hasn't been tested out yet) put in water.  I had never made this complex of a wooden toy before, but once I had an idea of what I wanted, I had to see if it would turn out. 

     Anna named it "Dragon Head", so I carved that in runes on the side.  I love the way it turned out, and the heft and feel of it.  I absolutely love making toys, more than anything else, really.
