Native American Woman with Papoose - Part 1

It's been a while since the last project and as many of you have ask me to do a series on a Native American Woman I thought that would be a good one to do.  As a little bonus I'll add her Papoose to make it really interesting.
I originally did this particular figure back in 1998 so the one we'll do will probably be a little different but basically the same and hopefully improved a bit.  To start we'll do the Papoose as you could use this part as a stand along piece.  I've posted a template for the blank in the Gallery and the dimensions for the blank are:  4-1/2" long by 2-1/2" wide by 1-3/4" thick.  For the hole for the baby's head we'll be drilling a 1-3/8" hole with a Forstner bit.  Make sure you don't drill it all the way through!!  The carrying frame will be made out of thin wood strips.  All these steps would be shown in the upcoming video.
This should be a fun project and not that difficult to complete.  Hope you follow along.
