This is in my for sure top 5 favorite items I have made and I liked it sooo much and was so happy with the outcome that I took it with me to show my father in southern California 3 trips ago and I can’t get it home. So this time I just gave up and took a picture of it.The original pattern was a scroll saw pattern but I had a different idea in mind. I wanted it to made into an intarsia project. Awhile back a friend showed me how to make these intarsia pine trees, and I love them and since the pattern called to cut out pine trees I just added these . This is a project I am really proud of and had planned on keeping , however someone came to my home and offered me a pretty penny for it but wanted me to keep it till later as it was a gift for someone in their home. I did not take the money but told the girl I was going to take it and show my father in southern Ca.(she’s a personal friend of mine)and would be back in a couple weeks. The couple weeks came and went and not only did I show my father this I guess I gave it to him. So the moral to this story of mine to me anyway is if someone offers me that kind of money for something I make I am NOT going to take it anywhere to “show and tell” I will take the money and run, run some more and then run. I simply have not seen any free scroll saw blades or bandsaw blades etc. lately! So every penny does indeed count. By the way this eagle has about a 30 inch wingspan which is hard to tell by the picture. And in case anyone is wondering Yes the girl and I are still friends LOL!

Very nice piece of art! You did a wonderful job of making it your own. I see that you made this a while ago. I just logged on and this was front and center. Lucky me!
