  • Horse Puzzle or Toy Patterns

    My granddaughter's fifth birthday is coming up and I would like to make a set of two or three horses for her. Either jigsawed but pinned together so there is movement but not a puzzle that comes apart. Or just some horse figures. I am interested in finding some patterns. She has been into My Little Ponies but the figures I've found have some details and thin sections that I think would not make good play toys.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    It can be as simple as doing an internet search for horse silhouette. Or maybe a plan like this:

      Are you talking about something like this? I google 'horse puzzle', copy, paste into Word or an imaging program to create the size I want and then print the 'pattern'.

        Thanks. I've changed paths in favor of a gear toy, but it is involved enough I have found something for her birthday and will complete the gear toy for a Christmas present.

              The gear toy is an excellent idea. Will intrigue her now and for quite awhile to come.

                Using the Forum to make a decision on purchasing my first scroll saw instead of a drone.

                Just looking at The New Scroll Saw Handbook by Patrick Spielman and found a picture of this saw on page 47. Make is unknown and photo was submitted by a Henry Aldinger. Is submitted as an early electric scroll saw.

                Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...
