My first scroll saw ornament.
Got my saw too late for this past Christmas, but watch out for next year. lol

I have a lot of practicing to do, but scroll sawing is really fun.
(even for an old shaky Jake like me).

Thank you to Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) for her help on equipment, supply, patterns and encouragement.

Thank you too Eric! It is people like you who make me love my work so much! I love your ornament! It is wonderful. I hope that scroll sawing opens an entire new world of woodworking for you! I love to see others discover how much fun and relaxing it can be, as well as rewarding. I can’t see what is on the horizon for you!

Great looking ornament, Eric. What type of wood did you use?

Thank you all for you nice comments.

Lew, I had some 1/4 plywood left over from a project an used that. And I finished it with some shellac.

I have about a million different Christmas ornament patterns that were given to me.
(The one above was one of the easiest..lol.)

I was told by the family to start making different ones for our tree next year.
I plan to experiment with different woods and finishes to see what I come up with.

With my new – much smaller – shop, I have to do smaller projects.
It is a lot of fun though.
Thank you again.
