Or, perhaps, The Bizibit Collection. That sounds appropriately classy, right?
I thought I'd get a group shot; it's the first time I've had all six figures together at one time since, I dunno, June.
Make sure to check out the individual ponies, too!

So cute 😍

See, this is what I love about bronies - every time you think you've seen everything, you come across something entirely new (to you) and unexpected, something neat that you never considered before but that you can't help but marvel at.

Love your work! :)

For the hair I just drop some bores into the head, neck and flank and insert the thread. Usually I seal this with superglue, but I've tried a few types of adhesive.
moodycharlie's avatar
Well, i think that it looks really well done :) i don't know if it helps me saying that, but i hope it dose! Also, bores for me, are hard to do. my teacher was showing us the other day how to use them, and frankly i'm going to stick to the simple things.(heehee)
oh! but i do get to use the engraving tool soon! im looking forward to that! sorry i keep on talking about my box and stuff, it's just nice to talk to someone who knows about this stuff other than my teacher. :) i hope i don't bore you.

Ooh! Have fun; I always enjoy engraving! A lot of the shaping and cutting is, for me, like mixing cake batter, it's fun and messy and important, but, basically, preparation. The real interesting bit comes when you get to do the decorating; shaping faces, engraving wings, doing swirly scrollwork etc. etc.
And by all means, talk about the box! I love hearing about this sort of stuff, I really, really mean it. I won't be bored (oh the puns...><).
moodycharlie's avatar
haha! i loved the puns thanks :D And im hoping to have fun with it, it's really cool to use. I've only used on a small thing before, but now i get to make it into something i want to do myself. (you see before my friend was engraving a paw into a clock, so i helped her with that, but now i can make my own!!)
thank you so much for letting me talk about the box with you, your really sweet for letting me do so. :D and im glad you like hearing about it! :D today i have to sand it down so im looking forward to doing that. i just love the way wood feels when it's sanded! :D
My friend was doing the same on Friday, and started to pet her box! :XD:

Fun! How'd the sanding go? For that matter how'd the engraving go?-I was pretty slow on this reply maybe you've done that too. :|
I waffle on sanding myself. I tend to slack of a bit when doing it with figurines, but I love sanding on lathes. You just feel so effective. You just hold the sandpaper and steel wool while the wood spins and-whoosh-smooth as glass. It's great to feel. :D

haha, im sorry im late on this reply, i've been really busy :saddummy: But! yes i have been doing sanding and it's pretty fun, apart from when your sanding the same spot for a very long time to try to get it to be even.....but hey. i love how smooth the wood is after sanding it though! i almost wanted to just sit down and pet my box. :icondummylaplz: I also got to use a hand held edger and it was so much fun! i was a bit scared, but it was pretty cool. the wood it chipped off looked like little tornado's.:dummy:
i haven't used the engraver yet, but i hope to soon :dummy:
im going to engrave a rose for my grandfather. it's one of his favourite plants, as well as engrave forget-me-nots,my favourite flower so he knows i still think of him even if he's in another country.:dummy:
hope to hear from you soon! i love getting your reply's :icondummydanceplz:

Mmm, I definitely know how it feels to try to sand out a knick that just wont go away. I guess I should have asked this already, but what sort of wood are you working with? Some of them are just a devil to sand down. :D
You mean like one of these? I love using edgers like that. I don't really get a call to use them much. Well...never really...but they've always seemed like such a hallmark of woodworking. You can just imagine ye olde carpenters using one. Which is silly-old planes were nothing like them of course, but still.
Where on the chest were you planning on engraving? Lid, front, all over? Awww, that's really sweet. :hug: He's a lucky grandfather. Where does he live?

These are so classy and rustic. And best of all, I doubt you'd get the kind of funny looks you might get if someone caught you with the actual pony toys. They'd be perfect as Christmas ornaments, or on a mantelpiece.

Thanks! I was actually thinking of trying my hand at some pony ornaments next year. =)
