Ok, this is not a project by me, but I feel proud enough to post it for the LJ members to see.
My son (Peace) recently picked up a used Dremel scrollsaw (the 3” blade version) for $10, so he’s trying his hand at scrolling for the first time. Here’s his first project for your comments.
He used clear pine, but left the wood unfinished with the intention of having the natural aging give it some patina.The composition was his, and the candle holder was the (well received) Yule gift to his mother.

Thanks Anna. An Excalibur sure would be nice, but not many around for the same price range that he paid for his Dremel. ;)

Great project build.

I like the way he decided to leave it unfinished. Sometimes I think people just believe that they have to put some type of finish on every wood project. A lot of woods can stand on thier own…...................

Beautiful work John. The young man has a real gift…..the imagery is very clear and has that calm quality that makes one keep looking at it. The natural finish is superb… You must be very proud of your Son.
