This is the present I made for my great neice and nephew.
I bought the animals throughout the year as I was passing the toy shop.
When December arrived I decided it was time to make the Ark for them to travel in.
Hopefully Sophie and Thomas will play with them for quite a while.
I tried to buy plans on the internet and ran into all sorts of problems. So I distilled the various designs into my version and just made it.
I used maple timber and the scrollsaw was the most important tool in construction.
Each layer is 3/4” wide so the 1/2” is glued to the one below leaving a 1/4” overlap for the clinker built effect.
Because the giraffe is very tall, the deck has a hole in it for its head to come through.
