Make the lily pad
Transfer the lily pad pattern to the kiwi Corian and cut it to shape. Sand the edges and apply the four pressure sensitive feet to the underside.
Make the frogs
Transfer the frog pattern to the malachite Corian and bore blade entry holes for the eyes, mouths, and legs. Saw the piece to shape, starting with the interior cuts and then sawing around the outside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, then place the frogs in it for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the piece from the oven and form it into a "U" shape by bending it over a brick. Caution: handle the Corian piece with care during this step as it is extremely hot! Allow the frogs to cool.
Referring to the Assembly Drawing, glue the frog to the lily pad with wicking cyanoacrylate glue and enjoy!
