This was actually my very first scrollsaw piece ever. I cut this on an old scroll saw I bought from a friend. It’s still one of my favorites. Framed in a salvaged cabinet door.

Wow, that looks like it was a ton of work! It looks great…you captured a good representation of a grizzled old man that was likely meaner then both of us put together :)

It’s cut in Baltic birch plywood. No voids and cuts nicely.

Thanks!

I am a bit jealous, my first piece was burned before anyone else saw it and yours is good enough to be framed.

Great work!

Boy, do I feel silly! I was expecting a classic motorcycle. Just joking.

Nice work, not joking this time.
