This was a quick project about 1-1/2 hours from start, including the scanning of a larger template, layout cutting, and assembly.

It is from 3/8 pine and a chunk of fire wood. The legs have bamboo pegs that were drilled through the base and into the feet of the horse.
It is left without any finishing; as it is a gift for a little girl that loves horses. That way she can paint it the way she wants to.

I then put felt pads on the base.
Cut on Porter-Cable scrollsaw.

What a great looking horse and she gets to paint it the way she wants. It will make a nice gift.
