I wanted to draw and make my own version of the Shaker Tree of Life using a scroll saw. This was my first try at doing any scroll saw work. With a lot of learning and some frustration, it turned out to be a really nice Christmas gift to give last year. The tree is walnut and the background is maple. I finished it with both danish oil and polyurethane.

Thank you for all the kind words. I’m looking forward to being a part of the LJ community and learning…To answer the question the final size was roughly 30” in diameter.
