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”.
