This is an older plan that we have revised and offer as a PDF scrollsaw pattern in our online store. Simply cut out and paint the individual parts, then glue it together.
Use thin boards, thick boards, whatever you have on hand. Makes good use of those odd ball scrap wood parts. It stands near 9 inches tall, but you could set your printer to resize it and make it smaller or bigger. And if you like to paint, rather than cut, simply cut the outline and then paint all of the parts to make a flat, one board project. Doing that will also reduce the weight.
