If you're a fan of woodworking or DIY crafts, you've probably experienced the frustration of testing new tools or parts on projects that end up being wasted due to errors. It's a necessary evil, but it's always a relief when a test piece turns out well enough to use in your final product.

Recently, I was testing some new parts on my old RBI Hawk scroll saw and decided to use the opportunity to experiment with some kangaroo cutouts. As part of my Itty Bitty Animal Collection, I'm always looking for new animals to add to the lineup.

After cutting out a few different kangaroo designs, I was pleased with the results. The one in the front center had a unique, whimsical shape that I liked. It could be more realistic, but it has a certain charm that would make it a popular addition to the collection.

On the other hand, the kangaroo in the back was the most realistic but required a stand to remain upright. While I appreciate the attention to detail and accuracy, I prefer animals that can stand independently without additional support. However, some collectors would appreciate the added touch of the stand.

The Itty Bitty Animal Collection started as a small hobby, but it's grown into a sizeable project with 59 animals currently in the lineup. Each is handmade from wood and typically stands at most 3 inches tall. It's a fun way to exercise my woodworking skills and create something.

I'm always on the lookout for new animals to add to the collection, and the kangaroo cutouts turned out to be a great addition. While I haven't decided on the final design yet, several of these could be added to my Itty Bitty Animal Collection.

Testing out new parts on my scroll saw was a fun and productive way to experiment with new animal designs. It's always a relief when a test piece turns out well enough to be used in the final product, and I'm excited to see where the Itty Bitty Animal Collection goes next.
