Not my first scrollsaw project, obviously, but the one that I’m most proud of. Nearly a year in the works, with a whole lot of down time due to a shaft problem with my thickness planer. Pattern by John A. Nelson, from a book of 5 patterns. Two left to do.

Not just WOW, but WOW (that’s “wow” backwards!)

Not a lot of long replies, here. It’s hard to be verbose when you’re awe struck. Wow was my first thought, too. -SST

I hate to just say WOW, it’s been said already. But I know if you sat that in front of 100 people who had some concept of how much work went into it…95 would say WOW, the other 5 would just be speechless.
