You will need :
- paper glue
- paper (two different thicknesses , depending on how strong the result you want)
- x-acto knife
- (did i mentioned patien... ho... yeah! i did!)
Step 1: Printing
I drew the templates from scratch in Inkscape,then i simply printed this on normal paper ( the quality depends on the printer and paper of course ) and reinforcing by gluing thicker paper on the back.
There are two versions :
- female/starfish/pinkish pony version
- simpler wooden one ( photos of the Instructable are of this version )
Great for kids and fathers to spend some quality time together.
Just print pages 1 and 2 for the version you choose...
Step 2: Assembly
The parts are numbered and the number is referenced where the part should be glued to the other.
There is no need to follow a particular order of assembly, main parts are :
- head ;
- neck ;
- legs ;
- rocking feet
I would start by the feet (more difficult parts) and head, the others are simple boxes.
In the end add the tail and horsehair (these are basically a flat portion with glue applied to the edge and attached perpendicular to the head/body as shown in the photos.
(sorry no pictures on the construction, i got carried away by the urge need of building, so all i have are pics of latter stages)
