These are scrollsaw projects I’ve made, most of them donated for fundraising at the local high school.

The first one and last 2 involve bevel cutting and raising the cutout… In the first and last projects it was done to reflect parts in front vs behind a reference plane. The basketball and the football ones were cut, then rotary carved and sanded, then glued onto backers (maple and cherry, respectively).

Sweet work. I especially like the ones that were scroll-sawn and the cutouts raised up. They look great. Thanks for showing, and keep up the good work.

Love the high jumper. My son was very successful jumper in high school, I would love to have had access to something like that placque as a gift for him. Nice work!

My daughter was a champion high jumper in high school and I have a pic of her in the same position as the first pic in you post.. well done..
You can actually see what each is with out being told.. amazing what a few pits of wood can be made to look like.
The Butterfly swimmer is fab.

Larry, Thanks… I, too, am amazed when a pattern that is so simple can say all that needs to be said. The swimmer and high jumper were converted from embroidery patterns I found online. I’m not artistic, per se… that is, I can’t draw or create a pattern with pencil and paper… but I can modify things. The art of these is simple, yet elegant. The idea to bevel cut and raise parts in these projects came to me in a flash of inspiration.
