First and most importantly the design is from fellow lumberjock, Sheila Landry’s and is her creation to the fullest. It was listed as an intermediate project. Check out her website if you are looking for ideas for scrolling

I am not a very good scroller but I did my best to hopefully maintain the original concept. And my humble little harbor freight scroll saw chugged right along. (side note: I did get the EZ blade change system, and I highly recommend it).

I can say one thing; it is very nice just to put some music in my headphones and lose track of a few hours just sitting and cutting.

Finish is spray lacquer. Measurements are about 15 inches wide and 8 inches tall. I made two, one for each of me and my wife’s parents for Christmas presents.

Thanks for looking,

The Swede

Very nice and I guess SSA is looking at another addict. Scrolling is a very addictive hobby.

Thanks again for all of the comments guys. It means a lot, especially for a wannabe scroller/woodworker like me

This came out beautiful! I am sorry I didn’t see it before. It made me smile just to see it. :)

Have a merry Christmas! Sheila
