My grand daughter's 3rd birthday is two weeks away and Eva and I are making puppets and a puppet theatre as her gift. This project had to be designed from scratch to suit special criteria. We wanted the theatre to be portable, hence the handle across the top and it needed built in storage space.
|The front of the theatre, |
made from 1/2 inch birch plywood.
|The back of the theatre featuring 10 |
cubby holes to store the puppets.
The second tool is a straight edge. I use my straight edge to check whether I drifted off line when cutting my plywood sheets with my circular saw. I find that breaking down a large piece of plywood can be tricky without a panel saw. Even though I use a straight edge as a cutting guide small errors can creep into a long cut none the less.
Checking the corners and the edges are true makes for better results down the road. I think that were I a heavy user of sheet stock I would buy a plunge cut saw .
