The story starts with my first scrollsaw convention I met the artist Dirk Boelman. I took the pattern home and started cutting (alot of cutting).
when it was done I met the gentlman next to me, his name is Bob ,the pictures were taken on his 91st Bday. He is a scroller too,but do to age, can’t see any more. So I shared my work with him.He loved looking at it.
this was the first time I met Bob.

I also entered this project in the county fair,and won three ribbons,1’st place,champion,and grand champion. I was very surprised.

Truly amazing. It’s great to see what can be accomplished once you get the the spirit inside of you!!!

Your patience and dedication, and perfection are evident in this labor of love. I cannot even imagine the care that went into its creation. almost harks back to the medieval monks who spent years laboring on a small project. i hope that you are finding more templates to continue your output. Some founding fathers, or some clasic scene in our nations history, could be museum quality. and what is even more satisfying, your vision impaired friend can feel your work and appreciate its beauty as well as the sighted.
an inspiration!
