This cute little wood mouse is made of brown oak. There is a fungus that sometimes attacks oak trees. It stains the wood, making it highly valued, because the colour is entirely natural. This is a rich chocolate-brown, so it is a particularly good example. The mouse is 6 cm long, not counting its tail. It would make a great gift for an older child. Someone looking to dress a cheeseboard or wanting an unusual decor item would like it too. Here is how I make wooden mice.
