These are two more ornament cuttings I made. I reality, perhaps, I am reaching (or over reaching) the limits of my scrollsaw. However these were fun, I enjoyed them and I hopd that others do as well. The first ornament is made of Cherry and finished wioth spray shellack. The second, and trouble maker of the two, is from zebrawood and spray shellack.The store said the zebrawood should scrollsaw Ok but me experience is that I broke several small areas. I used a backer board to help support the piece but the front kept lifting and broke in several areas.

Any way I enjoyed them and hope you will as well.

I’m not religious in the least, but I appreciate the beauty you’ve created. These are lovely.

The crosses are beautiful. Zebra wood is pretty bridle for scrolling and I don’t like being that close to to it while cutting. It has a terrible smell to it. Dare I say I think you are getting better at scrolling with each showing.
The edges are cleaner, like you are gaining confidence.

They are very pretty. I have a piece of zebrawood here but I haven’t used it yet. It is good to have a heads up on how it cuts. Boy that looks like a lot of detail! I agree with Mainwood – you are getting better with each project. I enjoy seeing your work very much! Really nice job!
