For the body three pieces of 2x4 around 9" in length are stacked together but not glued yet. Using a spacer for the middle block I tested the ends to see what looked best.
Pattern of the ends.
To make a nice shape on the ends I first cut some angles with the band saw and then sanded on the belt sander. I find this way easier than to set up my table saw.
For the curves I first used a Forstner bit then bandsaw and cleaned up with router and some sanding.
