This project is not as complicated to make as it may first appear. The yoke and hanger portion of the bell were cut out of one piece ol oak. The body and lower por tion of the bell and clapper are each cut out of separate pieces of aspen. The lettering was scrolled out ol 1/8" Baltic birch plywood.

Cut the pieces

Aboch the patterns to the wood with spray adhesive and cover with clear packing tape. Saw the pieces to shape. As you cut the project apart, mark each piece and its location with numbers and/or letters so thai they can be put back in the right places after shaping (see Fig. 1). The l/2"-Dic. holes for the roundhead screw buttons, repre-senling the hanger Pots, should be bored before cutting the yoke apart.
