Here's a short article on how to carve and assemble this kicking mule toy that we discovered back in 2008. I thought it was time to bring it to your attention once again. The project is made by noted woodcarver David Sabol. David Sabol is author of the the book Wood Carving Basics
as well as a very comprehensive DVD on Wood Carving Basics
From the article:
The mule consists of four components: head, ears, front legs joined to the main body, and hindquarters. Pieces of brass rod hold the various parts together, and lengths of string keep them articulated.
