Teak monkeys!

TEAKMONK1These teak monkeys belonged to a friend.  The one on the left is missing his ears and upper…jaw?  Is that what that part is called?

TEAKMONKS2They aren’t the Danish monkeys by Bojesen, just adorable vintage Japanese knock-offs.

TEAKMONKS3I cut new ears out of a 1/4″ thick oak board, which fortunately is available off the shelf at Home Depot.

TEAKMONKS4The upper jaw-mouth-part-thing is one of those wooden half-eggs that you get at craft stores, carefully measured and then cut in half again and stained to match.

TEAKMONKS5He could have had a bit more underbite, but oh well.

TEAKMONKS6Yay!
