A Pokemon fan took up their woodcarving tools and created a pair of cute Eevee figures using some different types of wood. The Pokemon carpenter posted pictures of the creative process on social media and provided curious Pokemon trainers with a brief explanation of what techniques they used for the Eevee statues.
Known as the Evolution Pokemon, Eevee has long been considered one of the most popular Pokemon since its debut in Pokemon Red and Blue. With Eevee Day taking place on November 21 in Japan, and events throughout the week, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet hosted both a massive mass outbreak event and a seven-star Tera raid battle featuring Eevee. Though some Pokemon fans were divided over the seven-star Tera Raid against Eevee due to its lack of difficulty, only time will tell if a more challenging foe will appear before the release of The Indigo Disk DLC. With Eevee Day right around the corner, a Pokemon fan took the time to craft two wooden carvings dedicated to the Evolution Pokemon.
On Reddit, a Pokemon fan named samheck posted ten pictures of how they created their Eevee carvings on the r/woodworking subreddit. While Pokemon fans have made various crafts out of wood in the past, the OP said that they used basswood, cedar, and cherry to create the Eevee statues. Each Eevee was shaped in a curled-up and sleeping pose, with black and pink paint on its face and ears that added to the charm of the Pokemon. However, one Eevee figure was larger than the other. Before assembly, the OP shared a picture of each Eevee carving dismantled, with each statue divided into six parts. The body, tail, head, neck collar, and each ear were carved individually and then sanded down with sandpaper before oiling. For the fine bits, the OP used a sanding cone attached to a Dremel tool and a nail file.
On the bottom of Eevee’s body, the OP also painted some pink toe beans under the front paws for some added decoration. Each part of the Eevee statues had holes and pegs that allowed for each part to be easily assembled into place, similar to how Pokemon fans have done LEGO designs of the Evolution Pokemon. For their work, samheck received compliments from other r/woodworking users and Pokemon trainers. Some users asked questions about the creative process, and the OP answered in kind with detailed replies.
With continued Pokemon fan tributes to Eevee and its related evolutions, the brown and cuddly Pokemon’s popularity remained strong throughout the years. It remains to be seen what projects Pokemon fans will create during Eevee Day.
Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet are the main entries in the series for Generation IX. They introduced over 100 new Pokemon and brought players to the Paldea region.
