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.

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!

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

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.
