Tree Of Life In Bloom in Red Oak Stands at 11 inch high 7 inch across and 3/4 inch thick of solid red oak.
Bathed in Tung Oil and Polished in Lemon Oil.
Took around 10 hours to complete and think it turned out pretty neat.
I took a photo of a tattoo and manipulated it a bit to make a pattern, and a little free hand to make it work.
Hope some of you may find it of interest, if you are into scroll saw work then this sort of thing is certainly a challenge . I had hoped to give it more detail but my Dremel give up on life so for now I called it a day.
Thanks for checking out my projects

Regards Barry Windsor Castle London.

Wow Barry, that is really nice. When I first looked at it, I thought it would make a great Trivet, but not sure I would spend all that time cutting holes of several of them to sell, but for the family members I would. You should pick up a Hegner SS and never have it break down. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Larry, I use a Hegner multicut one, its around 15-20 years old ex school machine, thats fine but when I came to use my dremel 300 it was dead, not sure if I want to buy yet another dremel, they never last very long !
yes it would be nice as a Trivet but way to time consuming to make. Anyway quite pleased with the result just now need someone to get there wallet out and buy it ! Take care Larry.

Nicely Done! I like the choice of Oak for the wood. I believe even those not into scrolling will enjoy this. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve seen many patterns for that and I think you topped them all. Very well done. I have a Hegner, fairly new to me and I have trouble getting it to accept the blades I like to use for fret work. I am lucky to have a Excalibur also and it accepts the blades I want to use easily. (3/0 FD spiral is what I use most). I hope I get the Hegner figured out some day. I may just be used for other things besides fret work.

Beautifully done, Bazz! A tattoo huh? Inspiration can be found anywhere, if you are open to it. So you were using the dremel to carve some relief type detail in the surface? What does the Tung oil under the lemon oil do for the finish? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Candy :— I did not get to use the Dremel I think the slide switch has give up ! I did have half a plan to use it to add a lot more detail but for this project Ive called it done.
Im finding the Tung Oil nourishes the timber and brings out the grain but leaves it looking Matt, but soak in lemon oil later not only leaves more of a semi gloss finish not really requiring waxs it acts as a Air freshner for the room.
Candy sorry to hear Mudflap has been having a rough time hope hes feeling a bit better.
Take Care Regards Bazza.

Very nicely done although I can see where it would not be good for selling due to the time involved.
