rjR: After looking at your scroll saw work, definitely not past your patience. I’d estimate total working time for this angel at 2.5 hours, including scanning the magazine article, resizing, tracing the pattern on the wood, cutting on the bandsaw, then carving and painting. Three tools (other than the bandsaw) were used: knife, v tool, #7/10 gouge (for the wings). It took about a day and a half, all told, but most of that was waiting for paint to dry and working on something else while waiting.
