An unusual outdoor
display for the holiday season can be
made with figures cut out from 1/4 inch
the ground with a spotlight in back. The
light casts a shadow of the cutout figure
onto the door as illustrated in photo
Draw the design by means of the squares
method onto some butcher paper and then
trace it on the waterproof plywood.
Because of the small arcs it is best to
cut out the design on the scroll saw
using a No. 96 blade with the machine
running about 1275 rpm. The stake portion
can be cut with the figure or separately.
If metal stakes are used, they can be
screw fastened to the plywood figure.
Sand off all burrs. Apply several coats of wood
preservative "Woodlife'"obtainable at
local hardware and paint stores. When
preservative is thoroughly dry, apply a coat of
black flat enamel.
