The cute turkeys that @steph made last year have come back! Yes, nearly an entire year has passed! She shared a PDF file, as she was unsure how to upload the SVG. The notches were not the right size for me, since she had originally designed it for baltic birch, so I sent a message asking her if she could try the SVG again so I could edit it in Affinity. It came through just fine, though the pieces were set to fills, so I took the fills out and re-did the notches. This one was before I got all the notches completely right, so has a bit of glue to hold it together. This is my test turkey!
Next time, I will probably flip the tail feathers over in their cut out holes and score both sides…something I didn’t think of until I put this one together. And, then of course, color both sides of each tail feather.
I started out coloring them with my oil-based markers, then realized I was wasting some expensive pens, as this is PG draft board and the paint just soaked right in. So, I got out my regular sharpies and went to work.
Now, I’m all set to make my youngest grandson a little turkey with his name on it. If anyone would like to have the file for this, I’ll be happy to share Steph’s great little design, again.
