oh my gosh yes! It was a struggle!
hmm, not sure if there were different models of the toy. I used my sisters hand me down as a kid. All the light shown through when you didnt have the black paper template covering the front. Once that was used and you took it off the light was showing. I did originally use thin foam to block the light but I ran out of time and it didnt really make a difference to the project.
You could use thing foam to do that but the original was only blocked by the paper pattern. If you were making up your own images then the light would always shine through, other option is to make black wooden pegs
Thanks for the info. 👍🏼
I did. So I layer the piece of plywood with the holes on top of the back piece and just traces the holes on the very end. I went to a local plastic store and had to order the acrylic rods. Thanks. It was a hard project but also fun.
Glad you liked it.
Thanks! Yeah if it was inches I probably wouldn't have even posted it.

I don’t remember the size but this wood was mahogany. You can use plywood for most things but I used a hard wood since it was for my mom.

That would probably work well. You can set the bottle of oil in warm water then it shouldn’t make the wax clump up when you add it.
It can be applied on top of other finishes.
