I’ve made a couple of wood (mdf for the moment) jigsaw animals, but run into the problem that with a 1/8" bit they are as loose as anything, and cutting with a 1/32" bit I can’t cut deep enough, plus it takes forever and plus I only have one of these bits and don’t fancy it’s chances of surviving much use…
To get around this I got the svg from Suncatcherstudio.com, then in Inkscape separate the pieces and from there import the resulting svg into Easel, where I can cut it out with the 1/8" bit. Here is an example. There’s still a little slop between the pieces, but it’s acceptable.
The grain won’t line up when I get to making one with real wood, but I think that might add “character”.
Does anyone else make these toys with a better solution?
