Hey guys, this is one of my latest scroll saw projects. It is around 45 inches long and took a little over 7.5 hours to cut and assemble.

I really enjoyed making this pattern and project because I enjoyed the small circus and carnival groups that would come to our town as a child.

The project is pretty easy to make because I designed it to be stack cut to keep time to complete to a minimum. All the pieces are cut from 1/8” Baltic birch plywood so stack cutting is easy. Because it is 1/8” BB ply it would be a good project for the laser cutter guys here. My patterns are PDF format but the pattern pages are still vectors and can be imported into Inkscape or another vector program for laser cutting.

Like all my project the pattern is available for free on my blog. Just visit the blog and look for the link to the Pattern Catalog. Search “circus” from the catalog to find the pattern.

There is also a short construction video for tips.

Great work

So sad that many children will no longer be able to see a real circus anymore

Thanks, Majuvla. I appreciate the kind words but I should point out that this is not intended to be used as a toy for children. It is far too fragile for that kind of use. It is only a display project. I should have mentioned that in the original post.
