After the cabinets came the Noah's Arks and toy barns. You got to admit that these are smaller than the cabinets (and lighter too). They also offer nearly the same challenges as did the cabinets, just on a smaller scale. The barns have the same structural elements as the real barns that they were patterned after; down to the pegged joints (see detail photo). The ark animals became the real start of my carving. I was determined to give the animals more detail.
