Default train in saw

got a customer who ordered a train in a saw. I got the pattern from wooden teddy bear site. I have a question has anyone done one of these before if so did you put a backer on it. the customer didn't specify. the only reason I'm asking is some of the pieces are fragile. I still have to glue the handles on and put finish on. thanks for looking.

I've done several and didn't put on a backer but it wasn't as fragile as this. I would put a backer. Very nice.

I would ask the customer if they would like a back on it & go from there. I personally think a backer a little heavier than craft paper would work. You did a fine job cutting them & look great. Take Care.

That is a great design well cut!
What wood did you use?
I would put a backer on it of a contrasting color.
How is this mounted? will it have a hanger?

Very nicely done!

I've done a few saws like this. I think any backer material you use needs to be pretty thin, so as not to mess up the look and proportions of the saw. I've used colored posterboard and some very thin BB ply that I got at Michaels. It was actually more like a veneer than plywood, but it was in the same spot as all their other BB ply selection.

On the last 2 I made, I mounted them to pieces of old weathered barn siding. I used short pieces of 1" dia. dowels as standoffs, so that the saw was out away from the barnboard about 3/4".
