I did this project for a person that I work with. Him ,his son and grandson work on this small lawn tractor together all week to watch his grandson , pull the tractor down the dirt track going for that full pull. He wanted something special for his grandson, so he gave me a picture to see what I could do. Designing the pattern was easy, but I wanted a challenge so I wrote Little Temptation in cursive on the side of the tractor. He was amazed that I did that and he really like the project. It was cut out in 1/4 oak wood using 1/32 drillbit and 2/0 spiral blade with a felt backing.The scrollsaw picture is 8×10 but place in 11×14 frame. thank you for viewing this project.

Very, very cool! I do some scroll sawing, but nothing like this.

That is very nice and I’m sure they’ll like it much. If you would spend a little more time with the pattern making you can bring out more detail and really make it ‘pop.’

amazing picture to capture the memories..
and the lettering.. that must be a really really thin cut…

so I have a question: how do get the started hole in the wood for the blade that is smaller than .. whatever… without a round hole showing?

Love the original art. So much better than cookie cutter scroll saw patterns.
