My only reservation is that metal work and carpentry doesn't lend itself to puppets well, and that is my forte. I'll have to ponder and see if I can think up some ideas before I decide if I can participate in this swap.

You dont have to make puppets you can make anything based on the work of Jim Henson. I dont know what kind of metalwork you do but you could make a little sculptor out of found objects, like nuts and bolts, or if you do woodburning you can do a characture or a scene that way.

Oohhh... for carpentry- make a shelf with a "back" shaped like Kermit- or any other character.  Obviously, I am not carpentry oriented... Tongue

Woodburning, in any form.  My kid  I would go apes for a step stool with pretty much any character on it. 

Metal working- depends on what you do, but I can see a wall hanging done in kind of an industrial/steampunk Jareth (yes I know David Bowie isn't exactly Henson, but, Labyrinth is Tongue)

I beg to differ! The landstriders or the garthim would be awesome in either medium

Even though this thread started on a bad note, I am THRILLED to join in!  The Muppet Show makes me laugh all the time.  One time, as I was watching it in high school, I was laughing so much, my mom asked me if I was high.  I wasn't, but I was giggling that uncontrollably!

Ah, it was the the cute little ones from Dark Crystal! Thanks for the tip Grin

And yay for metal work and carpentry! That would certainly suggest a whole lot of different takes on the Henson theme...I would love one of the little Labyrinth bombs made from real metal! Grin
