Scrollsawn Dinosaur Collection

After getting feedback from those who were interested in my dinosaur puzzle posted last month, the input suggested that I needed to simplify the collection to allow younger children to enjoy these dinosaurs. So, except for the palm trees, I cut the figures out without making the jigsaw pieces. The 2 pieces to get the palm tree were glued back together to make it one piece. I think it will allow ages 3 and up to enjoy the study and imagination of the dinosaur age. I think children under 3 yrs. might inadvertantly break some of the pieces like the neck of the apatosaurus.
I used the similar hardwood species and finished with water-based poly.
Thanks for looking and your comments are welcome.

Great job… I really like the solid pieces better than the puzzles. My mind is too simple for puzzles.
What is an apatosaurus????

An apatosaurus is more commonly known as brontosaurus. They were thought to be 2 different species but, when they were found to be the same, they use apatosaurus because that was the name used first. This could be a “Trivial Pursuit” question!

Place me in the camp in favor of the solid pieces Lorna. So all those years Fred Flintstone was actually eating apatosauraus not brontosauraus burgers? Doesn’t have the same ring to it.
