This eagle was scrolled out of baltic birch plywood and the backboard was painted black. For the eagle I used a pecan colored stain. This ended up being the hardest item I had scrolled to that date. I used baltic birch plywood for the eagle. It was quite the challenge as I had never used it before other then for a backer board and had no clue as to the way this wood handles beneath a scroll saw. I also have a new and heightened respect for those that scroll with this wood, those beautiful intricate work pieces that you see at these craft fairs and shows. I had to be super careful as I kept feeling like this wood was going to break. This is another pattern that I got from Creative Woodworks and crafts.
