Thought I’d brag a little and upload pictures of “On the Prowl” which was one of my entries in this years Competition/Exhibition at the Bribie Island Woodcrafters. Bribie Island is in south east Queensland (Australia) I was fortunate enough to be awarded the “Trevor Peters Award for Excellence” which is selected by all the judges. Trevor was the founding member of the Bribie Island Woodies and after he sadly passed away several years ago it was decided to change the name of the award from Grand Champion to Trevor Peters Award for Excellence.
The pattern for the Cheetah was originally a Jeff Zaffino pattern (wonder where he is now?). I used Finnish (Baltic?) Birch, with black velvet backing.
This is my first project on Lumberjocks, after Larry (Degoose) introduced me to this site. I have been scrolling for several years and gradually progressed through a couple of scrollsaws before finally seeing the light and saving up until I could afford an Excalibur. I subscribe to “Creative Woodworks & Crafts” which I eagerly look forward to for the new patterns.

Thanks for looking,
