Merry Christmas All! This is a replica of a Large Coconut that I built. Made lots of mistakes but had so much fun! So much appeciation to Pete for sending me the dimensions and for whipping up a perfect batch of coconut!

That's incredible. Looks like a authentic putz house from Japan. It's very nice.

Thanks all for the kind comments. Yes, it is Petes coconut. Been thinking about trying to make my own using the tips provided on the forum. Just need to find time!

I always sign my initials and put the year on the bottom of the houses I create. I get so much pleasure giving them to other people!
