Our "Dutch Cousins" Door Stops

Click to download the largest available size. This Dutch cousin
holds a bouquet of flowers and her white apron is trimmed
with a ribbon of polka-dots.
       Either trace the outside lines on transparent paper and transfer to wood, jig-saw out and color yourself, or print and cut figures out, lepage or paste them on wood and saw out. Use plywood, Presdwood or other thin wood 1/4 inch to 3/8 thick. Dado one end of base to hold cut-out and put gradual bevel on other end with belt or drum sander. Lepage upright to base.
