Pholocopy the patterns, reserving I he originals for fulure use. Using spray adhesive, attach the fairy pattern to the appropriate piece of wood. I recommend using clear packing tape on top of the pattern to reduce the burn from the tight turns you will have to make when cutting the pattern. Drill the guide holes, and cuf out the fret pieces. I recommend using a No. 2 reverse tooth blade for the majority of fhe cuts to reduce chipping on the bottom of the piece. I also used fhe No. 2R blade because I was working with 1 /2"-thick wood and wanted to maintain the details ot fhe fairy interior.
After cutting, peel the pattern off. Alternatively, use a solvent such as paint thinner to remove fhe paper pattern. Let fhe piece dry before sanding the front and back on a disc or belt sander. Use 220-grit sandpaper to remove any remaining burrs and to lightly round the edges. Clean the fairy using your favorite tool of choice, such as a clean paintbrush.
Using spray adhesive, attcch the two base patterns to the wood. Cut them out using a No. 5R blade, remove the patterns, and sand both pieces. If desired, rout the fop edge of the bottom base piece.
While there are several ways to attach the fairy to the base, the following is my preferred method because there are no visible joins or screws on the finished piece. Refer to the patterns, assembly diagram, and photographs when determining drilling locations and alignment of the pieces.
