    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.

                    He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....

                    Very nice. I thought it was carved.

                    For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

                    I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

                    by Ennobee
                    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                    Hi Jim.
                    glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...
