Original Plan from Craftsman Space

I made this for my son, aptly named Gryphon. It’s Purpleheart and Walnut and finished in oil. Don’t mind all the fuzzies stuck to it. I didn’t have a lint-free cloth on hand at the time. lol

Nice scrolling. I like your work, I’m a scrollsaw begginer so every such project inspires me.

These pieces are wonderful. After removals of the lint, a good shiny coat of paint would really make the Griffins pop! Have you put any thought into whether you’re going to paint them or where you’re going to mount them after you’ve put the finishing touches on them?

Marcio – I didn’t paint it since this was for my son and he picked the woods he wanted. I told him a lighter wood on the background would make them stand out more, but he’s a teenage boy and he wanted dark colors. lol There’s a wall hanger on the back and he hung it in his bedroom.

Nice bit of scroll work and great choice of timber I read through your project and something bugged me !
I had to come back and make a comment…..
Great Project and really well done but I can not get over what marcio said to you ?
He is joking right ? PAINT Do What !
Paint paint almost in a rage here ! Paint Purple Heart has he crawled from under a rock ?
YOU DONT PAINT PURPLE HEART ITS BEAUTIFUL RARE AND VALUABLE.. Really Marcio its not MDF
its Purple Heart and then goes on to somewhat insult you by say when you do the finishing touches it has to be a wind up come on…..if hes serious hes simply on the wrong site ! he should be on I love MDF Dot Com.

lol Easy there, Bazz! :) I agree – I would never, ever paint purpleheart. I assumed Marcio meant painting the background (not that I’d paint walnut either though). I did try to talk my son into a maple background or baltic birch painted a color of his choice, but walnut and purpleheart are what he wanted. :)

Just a bit of fun making a point. Purple Heart can get tricky to work with and can be very sensitive to Sun light and here in England its quite expensive so the last thing you would do is paint it .
Anyway you are doing real good got yourself some nice projects there well done and good luck. Bazza.
