Scroll Saw Barn Animals

My wife was looking for some wooden animals for her daycare kids to play with. It didn’t sound hard so I found a used scroll saw on kijiji, printed out some templates, taped them to some 3/4″ pine board and started cutting.

They definitely aren’t hard to make, but they do take up a boatload of time. If you want to make these yourself be prepared to put in some earbuds, get a comfy chair, and spend the next few hours zoning out lining up blade with line.

I probably wouldn’t go with the 3/4″ board again though. It made for some nice solid pieces, but it also made it very easy to snap blades.

And of course if you’re going to have animals, you need to have a barn for them. 🙂
