Just finished this in time for my first show at the local library. I was able to get 7 pieces put together. This is another Jeff Zaffino pattern and it seemed to take me forever. I didn’t really keep track of the time but it was considerable. It has well over 1000 inside cuts.

Very beautiful work. Thank you for sharing. I have looked at this pattern a few times and thought “I think I will wait on this..”

I’ve told my friends for years…......I wasn’t born with patience, scroll sawing will develop it for you. ;^)
I know that you didn’t time yourself but, I know you sat (at least I sit at my saw) quite a while.
Very nice work.

When you get one of Jeffs patterns done you’ve made quite and accomplishment. I’m working on the Last Supper now-got about 75-80% done and the blade hooked the face of Jesus and tore the whole face out I’m sure what I’ll do ,try and finish this one or start another. I’ve been using Finnish plywood . Raker

Thanks for all the encouragement. You guys are right. scroll work takes patience and you need to be a little crazy. I call it crazience.
