Folkart Marble Chaser

Here is the finished marble chaser. It's small, 8 inches high, 10-1/2 inches long and 5 inches deep. The kids love playing with these (of course they have to be old enough to play with marbles).




Here is a wee short video.




You can see more photos of this marble chaser on my etsy shop. Galen (my handy dandy hubby) has made quite a few marble chasers, all sizes ~ small to really, really big! We sell the small ones on etsy because the shipping is very reasonable. The large ones get too costly to ship so we usually sell those at the fall festival here in our town. But if you're interested in a large one, let me know. You can also see more here.

What a great gift idea. That is so cute how you painted the sides like cute little marbles bouncing. I love it.

You are so talented and nice.

Have a great day Donna.

This is so lovely Donna. I love the way it is painted, wouldn't this look wonderful in a child's room? You are so talented. Karen

Donna, you don't have to be a kid to want one. I'd love to have one sitting on my desk at work. And I know someone at work who would love it! Really. Christmas will be here before we know it. I need to think...

I visited your other blog for the first time today. My Christmas list could get long!

Hi Donna.
What a great marble chaser. It reminds me of when our kids were young and we went to Cape Cod every summer. There was a HUGE marble chaser in the Brewster General Store which they loved.
I love the cheery way you painted it too!Hugs, Rhondi
