And now for the ‘Moose Lover in all of us!’ . . . The Moose See Creature! As with the White Tail Deer, the original pattern was made from MDF and painted. Keeping with the philosophy that “Naked is nicer” I decided to show this moose in his altogether too. (Oh, come on! . . . We only see his head!) This handsome creature was made from Mahogany, with Walnut antlers. I used 3/4” Mahogany and 1/4” Walnut. It is finished with mineral oil and paste wax, but you can spray it with poly or your favorite finish if you want. It is quick, easy and fun and sure to be a great conversation piece! I hope you enjoy them! (Oh, you could also hang these on a wall to hold your shop glasses!)

I like both of your critters. I’m sure they can be put to other uses, too. Hang keys on the antlers, a place to stash your watch and other stuff. Thanks !

I actually have 12 in all! They are a bit different from what I am used to making, but they were silly and a lot of fun. Thanks so much :) Sheila

Thank you Cool! Yep, they actually made the cover (as the inset anyway!) I was really proud of that, as any cover at all is a real accomplishment. :) I hope you try to make one. Glad you enjoy it.

I need to finish cleaning up my “new” scroll saw first pics here

I have the surface rust off of the table (W-D 40 and scotch bright pad).
Still need to wire in a switch, and I think I’ll replace the motor belt.
I did put a blade in and make some cuts in a piece of hard board, just couldn’t wait to try it out.
