  • When cutting out the shapes, make sure there is a lot of support otherwise the wood will snap
  • Cut out the centre first, then the outer line so the remaining wood provides support

  2. Trace the pattern on one piece of wood
  3. Sand and prepare the other piece of wood to be the base
  4. Cut the inside of the shape out with a coping saw
  5. (We cut the inside first as it is more stable than cutting the outside first)
  6. Cut the outside line of the shape

  1. Sand the shape
  2. Sand a slightly flat spot on the bottom of the shape
  3. Glue the shape onto the base wood with hot glue or PVA
