This monster-sized gator is 8 feet long from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail!
This is a layered animal project on steroids! It's made by gluing together 65 different layers of mostly 1-1/2" thick lumber, then sanding and painting. When finished, it's a really impressive project you'll be proud to display.
You get full-size patterns for all the layers along with complete step-by-step instructions and painting details. (96" long x 24" wide)
I built this monster layered alligator in a very special way. I cut all the pieces as laid out in the pattern but then used my drill and hole saw to tweak the pattern. Now my monster alligator is a water fountain! The 1 1/2" diameter hose goes in at a 45 degree angle starting at the legs then straightens out and runs out it's mouth just above it's teeth. Everyone can't believe what I made. I have had compliments on top of compliments. Plus I didn't have the right tools. Just an old jigsaw,a drill, and a hand sander. So lots of hand sawing and sanding. Everyone thinks I used big expensive tools. Thank goodness I had an awesome grandfather! Now the Secret Garden is really amazing. On to the next project. Thank you Winfield collection!
Just completed and placed on my front lawn. 10 people stopped and took photos in the first 1/2 hour. Fantastic project!!
