Toy Beauty Set Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download Below

Okay, grandpa. It's time to get out in the shop and make a beauty-set for your granddaughter. I noticed that in yesterday's post of toys that there were not many for young girls. I will try to make up for that over the next few weeks.

These patterns are just about as easy as it gets. All the pieces are 1/4" thick with very few interior cuts. It took me less than an hour. I did spend a little time sanding the edges to make them easier to hold. I could/should have sanded even more. The edges should be practically rounded over.

I did edit the scissors pattern after I made the ones in the picture. If you look closely at the picture you will see that they will not close all the way. I fixed that problem in the final pattern.

There is also one extra pattern that is not shown in the pictures. I added a perfume bottle.

This is a good time to do a safety check:

It looks like many of us have some extra time at home right now. It is a good time to think about being productive. Sitting in the recliner is productive. I saw logs there every day. Maybe I need to reevaluate my definition of being productive but I like my recliner.

When I retired a few years ago I came up with a rule for myself. I made the commitment that I would do at least one productive chore every day. The chore did not have to be a big event but I just did not want to have days where I watched television all day or only played on the computer. 

I have been fairly good at following my rule. Only if I am sick do I fail.
