I laminated 4 pieces of ply wood, cut a seahorse outline on the bandsaw, then used sanding drums to shape the seahorse… drilled a hole in the bottom for a dowel and made a platform to support it. It is about 14” high. I made this several years ago for my daughter, but I recently discovered boxes made by mgb_2x and it reminded me of what I liked about shaping plywood… very interesting effects.
(I forgot to add: this project plan was from Arbortech, (http://www.arbortech.com.au/upload/pages/news_20090109144014/seahorse.pdf) a company that makes carvers to fit on angle grinders… their cutters look like teeth from a chain saw… I didn’t use their product, but I used the pattern and concept… I didn’t want to make it seem like it was my idea when it was not… I am not original enough to have thought it up on my own!! )
