This is the most daring thing I have ever created with my scroll saw! I am so excited to share the details and patterns with you! I have decided to have an Eskimo themed party for my baby boy's second birthday, and thought I would make a play set for him to go with the theme. I have found a few on line, and they are SUPER expensive! This probably cost around $10. I already had the paint and the supplies for the Eskimo's.
I think my favorite part is the fishing hole!!!
I love the sled too.
Maybe the papoose is my favorite. I can't decide!
Of course they have twins! If you want a tutorial on the Eskimo dolls, message me, and I will be happy to post it!
When I don't want to use the fishing hole, I use this other piece I painted. It was going to be the top originally, but it was too small, because I have too many animals. I like how it's interchangeable.
They hang the fish they caught on their home.
My mom told me to make the baby seals, and I love them. The others are in the water below.
I used the drill press to drill a hole for the fishing pole to fit in. You could do it with a drill as well.
Happy Eskimo family!
You can see the Studio 5 clip of showing it live HERE. And my inspiration board HERE. Be sure and check back for details of the party! I can't wait!!!
Here are the separate pieces.
I used 1/8' x 2' x 4' mdf from Home Depot for the base.
I used 1" common board (pine) for the stands and animals, also from Home Depot. You can see how the pieces with the hole layer on top of each other.
You can cut the u-shaped piece first, then use it to create the other pieces, as pictured in the photo above.
Here are the patterns for you. I drew them on graph paper originally, and just traced the shapes I had already cut out below.
I love this little polar play set, and can't wait to give it to my son, so we can play with it together! My older kids have been begging to play with it as well!
Up next, I will be showing the car mat I made for my nephew, and due to multiple requests, I created a Nativity scene, and will post it with patterns!
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
