Dave Nichols' Cigar Store Indian

UGH! HAVE A CIGAR
A modern twist on a familiar icon.

SHOP OWNER: Dave Nichols
LOCATION: Palmerton, PA

    Here's a cigar-store Indian I made from plans I got from Cherrytree Toys. The Indian has a 3/4-in. plywood back, and the intarsia pieces are cut from assorted pieces of 4/4 and 8/4 pine, shaped and laminated together. The plans called for a thickness of 2 1/2 inches but I made him 7-in. thick for a more three-dimensional effect.
