Bavarian Culture and History
Whenever tourists come to Germany particularly during festive periods, they share mulled wine and a tradition that has been a lifestyle for ages; the buying and sharing of handmade gifts. Although, the markets did not have focus for Christmas only, they also sell baskets, wood carvings, baked goods and toys for Christmas. The effect of the middle ages on the German culture has however resulted in a great Christmas culture. This has now been adopted by many cultures and traditions. Though Christmas is of course celebrated in December, but even by November, the German hand gift markets are already booming. And starting December, advent cards are used for count-down to Christmas making the event more exciting and festive.
An average German has often held a number of Bavarian traditions. Bavaria is a state located at the Southeastern part of Germany. Great international brands (Say Puma, Adidas), traditions as well as popular museums, theatres, operas and orchestras and festivals are enjoyed in this part of the globe. It is these festive periods that house the moments in which most hand-made gifts are shared in Germany.
The Peter Rascher family who are locals in Bavaria, have for decades shared and distributed hand-made gifts as milestones in the great country tradition.
The Rascher family concepts are of high variation. These ranges from Ornaments to Pyramids to Christmas Stars and all.

Design of our Smokers
The basic process for making smokers is through the handcraft process of woodturning. Initially images of every day personalities are incorporated. However, overtime there is the incorporation of Santa Claus and diverse modern motifs. The various designs include small and large smokers, standing smokers, edge tool smokers, bakers, foresters, salesmen, chimney sweepers, miners, et cetera.
How Smokers are Made
You should begin with turning templates by designing the lathe for the different pieces. This first process is ideal as it makes the turning process faster and easier. You can spray the designs, sticking them to a cardboard and cutting out the edges so you have an outline of the smoker already.
If you’ve already turned a block of wood to a rounder shape, you should continue the process marking on the smoker where the smoker transitions would take place. You may use a pencil for marking out these transition points.
To ensure evenness on all edges of your wood piece, you can use an adjustable wrench to take the measurements of various points. Separate the body from the head and then make a notch in the body for the lever to fit. Drill a hole through the lever and the body, so you can pivot it with a nail.
Next, glue the hat after making a brim for it. Ensure you glue the hat in place. Dowels pin can help attach the body to the legs. Attach the legs to a piece of wood and shape out shoes, tiny shoes most preferably. Then attach the arms and swinging body (if any). Glue the head, arm and head with the addition of hair and beard. Now paint every part with various suitable colors before this last process of attachments.
