These are some of the earrings I made recently. They’re made out of thin bamboo, and finished using furniture oil. Bamboo is pretty nice to work with on the scroll-saw.
I taped two pieces of wood together to make one set in one go. Making them exact duplicates and saving twice the work.
Bamboo very very consistent in hardness, unlike regular wood where there are harder and softer sections depending on the grain. Also cutting along the grain or perpendicular to it doesn’t seem to have any different effect. Which is pretty nice when cutting this much detail. Little tearout or burrs, so just a tiny bit of sanding is needed.
For fun; see if you recognize the emblems in the last two pictures!
