Here are a few more of my scrollsawing projects. The large mantel clock was a good project, it erned me a couple of ataboys from my wife. The Wood Line Construction Co. clock was for my son-in-law who owns that business.

I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing this stuff. Like I said early on that I like to do scrollsawing because I get tired of standing. Could be I am just getting old.

Really nice! I especially like #’s 2 and 3.
Number 1 is nicely done but, our winters aren’t long enough….:-)

Thanks, It did take me about a week and a half to do. I was able to gangsaw a lot of it.

WOW!! Awesome work. I have a scroll saw under my bench and I have not used it for years, after looking at your awesome work, maybe its time to re-think my next project and to add some scrolling. what types of wood are you using in this project, I can see one is walnut?

You should try the scrollsawing while the glue is drying on the other projects. I like it because it gives me a chance to set down for a while (I am 75 going on 6) at least that is what the grandkids think.

The woods I used are cherry, maple, and mahogany in the clock. What may look like walnut in the photo is stained mahogany.
