About a year and a half ago I posted my band saw horse. I had meant to get back to those interested in the pattern, much sooner than this. It is amazing how time gets away from you. I am new at making videos and it shows. So I can only hope that those that watch it, will find it didn’t waste to much of their time. I consider it a how to video. So I didn’t over speed it up. Just 2x speed during the cutting. So you can still clearly see how and in what order that I cut out the horse.

I did the last cut wrong… Just before the last cut you can see me clearing out the material at the back inside neck of the horse. I usually then back the blade out, turn the horse around, back the blade back into the cut, and then cut my way out. I try to always cut, in such away as to not get my blade trapped behind loose material.

Very nice pattern Terry and a nice how-to video as well.

I sanded down a 3/16 inch dowel to a point in the drill press and cut a 1/8 inch round tenon on the other side. I then drilled a 1/8 inch hole just below and between the ears with a cordless drill. Then glued in the horn. The horn is just about an inch long counting the tenon.

I have also done the reindeer swan and dolphin. But not the giraffe yet.

And thanks for buying the pattern. Terry
