  • 3 little critters

    Here are 3 animals I made for a 1 year old girl. With these critters she can learn the names of the animals and the colors of them while playing. She starts babbling already, so they are just in time.

    All animals are 28 mm thick, around 12 cm long and made from beech. The patterns come from the book Scroll Saw Puzzle Patterns from Patrick and Patricia Spielman.

    Very nice gift for a toddler and nice choice of colors. If you print out the names in red capitals and then use mod-podge to decoupage them to the side of the animal, it will add to the learning process. That's what I did for my granddaughter for her 1st birthday.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

      The alphabet and numbers could be cut out, too, and all kinds of animals. There's no limit what you could create for learning opportunities for little ones.
      Kids learn very quickly if given the tools to do it with and someone spend a little time with them.
      When I was 5 and 6 years old we didn't have kindergarten, back in that day.
      I started 1st grade knowing nothing. Absolutely nothing.
      I didn't know my colors, how to count, ABC's.
      My family didn't try to teach me anything. I had to learn all that in 1st grade.
      But today kids can have all that down pat way before 1st grade.

          I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
          I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

          Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

          I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
