Chef Spice Shelf to Make

Here’s a little spice shelf that any jigsaw enthusiast can produce in a hurry. As shown in the photograph, the shelf depicts a tiny chef standing in the doorway of his shop, with various spices on display in the windows.

Prepare a full-size pattern for the front piece on a sheet of paper at least 8″ x 15″ with the aid of 1/2″ graph squares. Transfer the outline to a piece of 1/4″ plywood measuring the same size as the pattern. The work of cutting this member to shape is done on the jig saw.

In order to remove the sections of stock to produce the outlines of the windows, door and chef, it will be necessary to bore a small hole within each area that is to be pierced. Through these holes the Read more

Novelty Horse Spoon Holder

This merry-go-round rack was designed for the display of six prized teaspoons or a collection of souvenir spoons. It makes a colorful little ornament for the china closet and can be lifted out bodily when desired to help decorate the tea table.

The holder is made entirely of  1/4″ plywood. For the horses, four pieces 2 3/4″ wide and 2 1/2″ long are required. Draw a full-size pattern on paper with the aid of 1/2″ squares, paste it on one piece of the plywood, nail all four to gether in the waste wood and jigsaw them to shape.

The two disks, which are 6″ in diameter, can also be cut in one operation. When this has been done, separate them and lay out and cut the notches for the spoons in one of them; also a 1/4,” x 2″ mortise in the center through which the handle can be clipped.

The central support consists of two pieces 3″ wide, one 4″ long and the other 6″ long. The smaller piece is left rectangular in shape and a notch 1/4″ x 2″ is cut in the center of one end as indicated. The other piece is jigsawed to the Read more

Wheel Barrel Magazine Basket

The attractive magazine basket shown in the photograph can easily be cut out and assembled by any craftsman owning a jig saw.
The sides will require two pieces of 1/4″ plywood 10″ x 12″. Since these pieces are identical in size and shape, the stock can be fastened together temporarily with 1/2″ brads so that both can be shaped at the same time. As shown in the Read more

The figures of the girls will require 3/16″ plywood, one piece being 5 5/8″ x 9 1/4″ and the other 5 7/16″  x 9 1/4″. Because of the grain direction shown in Fig. 2, the shelf will require a piece of 1/4″ stock 5 1/2″ x 8″.

A full-size pattern of the Dutch girl will have to be prepared from the graph-squared drawing on a sheet of paper 5 5/8″ x 9 1/4″ divided into 1/2″ squares.

The full-size pattern is glued to the 5 5/8″ x 9 1/4″ piece of plywood; then the smaller piece (5 7/16″ x 9 1/4″) is placed under the one to which the pattern has been applied. As noted in Fig. 1, the 3/16″ difference between the two pieces is at the inner edge to allow for the butting of the figures when they are assembled.

Since both figures are identical, the two pieces are fastened together temporarily with several 1/2″ brads placed within areas that are to be removed. To avoid the need of excessive sanding, the jig saw should be provided with a fine-toothed blade. All pierced sections will require the boring of small holes to permit the jigsaw blade to be passed through.

The decorative small circles bordering the apron on the figures are holes bored as indicated. All pierced sections should be cut first on the jig saw. The outer contour should be left for the final sawing.
