Are these pyrography?. Are they cut thru with the band saw? Nice look!

Well done Paul, great work as always. Is the basswood fuzzy to work with?. Like the natural edge on them.

Thanks for the comments. Scultoro3, they are cut through, done on a scroll saw.

Mike, the bass wood is not real fuzzy if you use flat blades, can be when using spiral blades. It is very soft and you have to take real care when threading the blade, that you don’t break something with your fingers as you are holding the piece. These are only around 1/4” thick, next time I will resaw thicker, after I use up what I have.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Great looking pieces.
At first I thought it was pyrography and was surprised it was scrollwork … that is some scroll work!

Thanks helluvawreck, GRahunter and oldnovice. I really appreciate you comments.

GR8hunter, this is much easier than the “toy” making. but, I do have a T & J 34 Chev started and I work on it a little once and a while for a diversion from scrolling.

Woooooooooooooow.

These are amazing and I can appreciate the time and effort that went into these. I especially like the cowboys.
If I may comment, the Indian one is a little busy. Can’t really distinguish the individual characters. Is there an extra horse between the 2 left Indian’s or is one turned sideways? Perhaps just a bit too much with the background detail.

Olswooseye,

Ha, I had to go look at the piece again. Actually there are two horses there. The “Chief” is leading on and it is slightly in front of another horse that the brave is leading. Only the head shows on the one the brave is leading. All the Indians are leading horses.

It is pretty busy. And yes the cowboys were harder for me. Larger areas of cut out so I had to figure out the best way to cut the big areas and leave support for the fragile pieces a long as possible. I took out the large cutout areas in small pieces.

Thank you for your comments.
