A Look Back in Time

Remember the March project for 2010?  It was called a Leprechaun String Puzzle.  The figure was carved into a 3”x 3 ½” cutout from 3/8” basswood.  The gold painted coins glued into the recessed top of the pot could have been sliced from a ¼“ dowel or popped out of heavy tag board with a paper hole punch.  Once it was all carved, painted and assembled, the trick was to get the shamrock and pot of gold on the same sting loop.   This usually required a visit to You-Tube and a search for “string puzzle solutions”.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
