I first got into wood working when I was around 10. My grandpa taught me how to use a scroll saw and I got into making these wood characters out of 3/4” pine, painting with acrylic and finishing with a gloss spray. All of these were made for people I work with so no, the Bratz dolls one is not for me! Now that I own a house and have a lot more tools I have gotten away from doing these, mainly because I don’t enjoy painting them like I used to however I will be making a few things for my 7 month old sons room.

HOLY CRAP. These aren’t projects, these are art pieces. Besides the scroll work being amazing, your gift is in painting/drawing, because… WOW!

Wow from one woodworker to another you have skills, the details you put into your work is awesome. Beautiful job. Superb craftsmanship. And please do not give up on painting, you have some of the best paint jobs i have ever seen. Love your work.

PS: I am not into Brat doll but i would put them on a table in my house anyday because of the craftsmanship.

Patrick, Welcome to LumberJocks. I would have to agree witht he others here your scroll work looks great and your paint jobs are quite awesome. Not sure I would display the Bratz, but I would certainly add the Marvin to my collection. You certainly captured the Looney Tunes right on.
