I made the PRINCESS CARRIAGE for a friend of mine, at Church. It is made from 1/8 inch Baltic Birch Plywood. The first step was to pre-sand the wood to 220 grit with my random orbit sander. Then I attached the patterns and started cutting. After all of the parts were cut I removed the leftover pattern and started hand sanding with 220 grit sandpaper (lightly). In about three steps I worked up to 400 grit sandpaper. I used very light strokes working on all areas of the piece. I stained with light walnut and applied three coats of spray shellac finish.

I have made this piece about five (5) times and each time I modify the assembly process. This time I have a very solid unit assembled with detailed techniques.

This is a Patrick Speilman pattern from his book, “Scroll Saw Scandinvian Patterns and Projects

Now I have already started cutting another one for a new friend I met through my daughter, on FaceBook. Just wish it was a little cooler outside.
