Next to scroll saw is the picture printed from the glass pattern book along with the enlarged picture I used.
Third picture, pieces cut out and I left the outside of the wood in one piece for the frame and to have something to stack all the pieces in. Last picture is the loose pieces. Forth picture is where I started rounded to tops and also cutting a 3/8” piece of BB plywood to raise the head to give a 3 D effect. ha First picture you can see where I used 1/8” plywood on two sides to take to gap out that was created by the saw blade. I attached 1/8” plywood to the bottom of the frame to keep the pieces together as I work them over.. Actually I am not through for none of the pieces are glued together back in the frame..
I made two copies of the enlarged lion, one to glue on to the wood to cut out and another to guide me where to put all those pieces. The large lion has numbers so I put the same number on the bottom of the pieces in case I got lost somewhere. Something really helpful. Before gluing the pattern on the wood, first cover the wood with clear packing tape so the cut out patterns will come off the wood better and will leave no residue on the wood. Time it took to complete this was way too long…..
