No, this is not some Biology experiment gone wrong – we do NOT need an exterminator for these Beatles!

I had a customer ask me to reproduce one of my earlier scrollwork pieces. I also have a great friend of mine that always wanted to purchase this work…...... You know what that means…..... Stack Cutting!

Wood used is 1/4” thick baltic birch. The pieces measure around 10×12”.

Finish, as always, is a soak in lemon oil and then backed with thick felt.

I love the way this pattern finishes – when you put the felt on it really comes to life!

Currently, I have all three works in my house – a full dozen Beatles and no need for bug spray! ;-)

That is just awesome. My son is the biggest Beatles fan there is and he might just become my biggest fan if I could make him one of these :) Where can I get the pattern? How long did you spend on these? I’ve yet to take on anything that tedious with my scroll saw but this might be a good project to start with. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like an opportunity to sell some patterns. I happen to know that he makes his own patterns.
