    Hello Everyone,

    First I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

    Second I would like to share an idea some of you might already have thought of.

    I made up some of those Mini Pocket Cars in the Holiday 2011 SSWC magazine and I got to thinking I would like to have something for little girls too.

    A little doll buggy I could put in my pocket.

    I made a pattern and cut some out of scraps of cherry. I am posting a couple of pictures and pattern for anyone interested.

                Thanks for the pattern Al. I'm always looking for things for little girls as there are more girls than boys in the family and girly things for the scroll saw are not too common.

                  Sorry it has taken me so long to get back.

                  Thanks to all for the nice comments.

                  One thing I might add is how I attached the baby in the buggy. I made my

                  buggies out of 3/4" stock. When you buy the wooden people they are 5/8"

                  diameter, to large to drill a hole for in 3/4" stock.

                  First I made a jig to drill a 1/4" hole in the baby from the bottom.

                  Second I cut the babies body off at the shoulders.

                  Third I glue a 1/4" dowel into the baby.

                  Fourth I drill a 1/4" hole in buggy.

                  Last (VERRY IMPORTANT) make sure that baby is securely

                  glued into the buggy.

                    Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                    Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                    Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                    My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                    I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                    Was it a good idea.....?...

                    Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                    The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
