I made this pin on the scroll saw by cutting the pieces out with a 2/0 blade and then shaping the individual pieces with the Dremel. I then glued them on to a thin piece of veneer for a backing pieced to hold them all together. I used a glass seed bead for the eye. I then used several coats of clear poly for the finish. The first pin is Walnut and Maple with a natural finish, the second is all of maple with a wash of acrylic paint, still allowing the grain to show through.

Really cool. Looks like a painted piece of art. I swear, in looking at your work and your site, I have developed a sincere interest in scroll sawing. I always looked at the with a “who would use that?” kind of attitude, but you do really amazing work Sheila. I may become a scroll saw convert.

I love your sea critters!

I have a scroll saw and it does the up/down thing… that’s about all I know. Where would I go to figure out how to use the thing?

That really means a lot to me! Thank you so much for the compliments. The little pins are really fun and I have so many ideas of ones that I can do. I guess you will all have to wait and see . . . :)

If I can inspire one person, it makes me happy! There are so many ways to be creative in this world. Even though I paint, I appreciate the natural beauty of wood. I look at everyone’s projects here in awe also. It makes me want to try so many other types of woodworking.

If you or anyone ever have any questions about scroll sawing, I hope you ask. I have lots of great people that I can turn to for help if I can’t help you. Even though it looks tedious, it is very relaxing and rewarding.

For Dragonsrite – these little pins are quite easy. Most of the ‘work’ is the Dremel work and shaping. They are good starting points. If you go to www.scrollsaws.com you will be able to find out just about anything to do with scroll sawing. Rick Hutchensen is a wonderful teacher and the site is quite comprehensive. You will want to pour yourself a cup of coffee and take your time to pick through. He has all kinds of videos and tutorials too. Enjoy and let me know how you do!

Thank you Sheila. I will check out the site you mentioned and, hopefully, post a trinket or two before too long.

Sheila, I already have you marked as a buddy, and I am sure i will take you up on that. I do believe my next purchase will be a scroll saw, and I will be asking for some advice.
