This butterfly model is standing on a purple heart base. The wings are cut from 1/8” thick poplar. The body is 1/4” thick walnut. The legs are copper wire. This one was fun to make and as always all my patterns are free to download form my blog if you would like to give it a try. Thanks for looking.

Nicely done Steve, especially considering the late time of day that you are doing this. ;)
I always look forward to receiving your patterns and seeing what your imagination is up to.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks John, yea most reasonable folks would be in bed a 4am. Since I retired a few weeks ago I have my nights and days all messed up. I have always been a night person but I need to get synced back up with a better schedule.

I love seeing your projects! I am so happy you are having a fun retirement. Keith and I are opposites – me the morning person and he the night owl. Some days I pass him as he is going to sleep and I am getting up! LOL! Whenever the creativity hits you is the time to create! The butterfly is lovely!

Hi Steve. Congratulations on your retirement. Thank you for all the inspirational projects you create, I really enjoy looking at your Scroll Site. As a beginner Scroll Saw Novice, the patterns you show are a very clear pathway for folk like myself to get to understand the basics of Scroll Sawing.
I also love that Butterfly Pattern. I noticed it on your site last night. The base it sits on looks very nice too.

Thanks for all the congratulations on my retirement. It’s not that I hated working, I just like it better when someone else is doing it. :)
