12 – Judges of Israel

016My next stick is carved out of mahogany.  016aIt is unique in that it has moving parts!  Using a principle I learned while carving crosses, I was able to carve this stick.  I chose seven of the Judges of Israel.  I would ask a question about the judge on the outside, then lift the lid and it will reveal the answer underneath.  Listed below are the questions and answers I chose.

1) Who was the First Judge?  Othniel  (Judges 1 & 3)

2) Which Judge was Left-Handed? Ehud  (Judges 3:15-30)

3) Which Judge was a Woman?  Deborah  (Judges 4 & 5)

4) Which Judge Blew a Trumpet?  Gideon  (Judges 6-8)

5) What Judge Sacrificed His Daughter?  Jephthah  (Judges 11-12)

6) Who was the Strong Judge?  Samson  (Judges 13-16)

7) Who was the Final Judge?  Samuel  (1 Samuel 1-16)

This stick took about two years to carve.  I finished it early in the spring of 2005.
