This weekend my grand kids helped me finish the last 2 of a 5 set skeleton arrangement .Lucas age 16 copied the patterns onto the plywood and then sanded them . Haven age 10 painted them . I cut them out . Little trick – I hung the cord of the jigsaw from the ceiling so it didn’t keep getting tangled up .

Woods: plywood

Tools: jig saw sander belt sander

That’s great, my kids would love this. Did you design/draw yourself or have pattern from somewhere?

Wes Louwagie – I order all my patterns from The Winfield collection catalog . I get a catalog for each season . The turnings on the lathe all come from my imagination .
