My Nieces have two children each. So I thought that even in today’s world of High Technology, the basics are still very important. Spelling, Forming words and sentences, Word Games etc. Also a good chance to try out my new toy. A GENERAL INTERNATIONAL Scroll Saw with a 30 inch throat. It is a Beautiful Machine and a real pleasure to operate. The Tilting Head and Blade Assembly is a big advantage also. I feel much more comfortable and safer working on a level table top.
So back to the Project. 4 sets of the Alphabet for each family. A total of 8 sets of the Alphabet…....A lot of Cutting and Sanding…....But even for a beginner like me the machine was a dream to use and a long and rather tedious project such as this was good fun.
There was no finish applied, just a good sand each side on the belt sander and a careful cleanup around the profile and gently softening of any sharp edges just in case, for little fingers.
PS: The Wood used was a good quality Ply around 1/4 inch or roughly 7mm thick.
The end result was the Kids love the Letters and think that Uncle Cliff is a Genius…...what more could I ask for.
Kind regards and Happy and Safe Wood Working.
