I Love Kitty Woodworking Plan
1/4" wood for cat's hind leg
Clear packaging tape
3/4" finish nails
White glue, picture hanger
Black wire and Raffia or ribbon
Scroll saw or coping saw
#9 saw blade
Needle nose pliers
Sand the wood on both sides. Cover the wood on one side with clear packaging tape.
Make two copies of the pattern. After making a copy, cut around the outside edge of the pattern, leaving a 1/4" to 1/2" of paper around the pattern lines.
Attach the pattern to the packaging tape with spray adhesive. Saw cat pattern and hind leg pattern with a #9 saw blade. Remove pattern and packaging tape.
Paint: Base coat the body with black. Add eyes in white. Using a small flat paint brush, dip it into the white paint. Dab on paper towel to get rid of most of the paint color, then add the white stripes on cat.
When dry, coat cat with Folk Art Antiquing medium or stain, wiping it into the dried paint until you achieve your antique looking color.
Nail hind leg to body with 3/4" finish nails. Make bow and glue to cat.
Make a 3/4" X 2 1/2" X 6" block. Drill two 1/16" holes in block and cat. With paint or a permanent market, write "I Kitty" on sign and paint on a Country Red heart. Thread wire through holes and using needle nose pliers, twist ends of wire in a circle.
