Spooky Trees

The first thing I built for my internship in Alaska was for a Young Performers Theatre production of Wizard of Oz. I was tasked to design and build trees for the Haunted Forest.

My first designs:

They were nixed for being too complicated to jigsaw out of luan. Fair enough. I liked them, though, so I started embroidering one:

I might do the others some time.

Here are my approved drawings:

Simple. So now, the building of the trees and their wheeled bases:

Then we had to paint them. My TD has a foam paint roller that he carved for a bark effect.

And I took a terrible picture of them in use:

And that was the first carpentry job I had in my internship 🙂
