I wanted something different to enter into a Scroll Saw show next month at a City 250miles away and this is the result, 12 panels which I scroll sawed and carved before the glue up, hoping that the Mobius would join up when finished and flukes do happen it didn’t even need adjusting. Bad news was my entry was returned as they considered that a Mobius cannot be done on a scroll saw, I have sent photos but have not had a reply.
This was done using Sawtooths method of 2 1/2 bowls and 10 1/4 bowls. Sitting on a piece of red gum stump.
I am finally getting the knack of gluing the sections in the correct sequence. Comments please.

Bob, You have excelled yourself this time. Fantastic Effort!!!!!! Those Carvings are so good. Bob, this would have been a very precise project as it really is a two in one…..The Mobius Ribbon and the Carving all in the same Creation!!!! I am also amazed that the entry was returned…..it is a wonder that the photos did not convince the entry people that indeed it was, created on the Scroll Saw.

The Red Gum again has worked splendidly for you. Great Creation!!!

Regards,

Cliff.

Awesome piece Bob. That’s a bad blow them not excepting it. Hopefully they will reconsider after seeing the pictures.
Or maybe they don’t need that much competition. Good luck.

When I seen the pictures, I kept trying to figure out how he did this on the scroll saw. Then I read your comments and I understood how. It is a beautiful piece and should have won Best of Show. Maybe next time you should send an explanation and pictures with your entry if it is something out of the ordinary and this piece is. Love it.

Well Bob

It looks like you have a winner ,no matter what they say about your scroll saw work. I know it does tee a guy off when you don’t get acknowledged for your talent. I still think it is a thing of beauty
hang in there buddy, keep the creations coming/

Thanks Bob. Never made No.1 before. Thanks all for your comments. Getting phone calls in regard to my entry,
the latest is that is not a true mobius ribbon because the surface has been carved, can be entered as a scroll saw project and not in the 3D section as requested. Have decided not to enter and instead redo the Anger Management Course run by Veteran Affairs.

I’d be right there with you, Bob! If this is not 3D, then I don’t know what is! Congrats on #1 here!
