Accomplished this last week these two works, the patterns were made by me in the Christmas holiday and only rested when I came to the garage and started cutting. It was with some excitement that I looked at the work already completed. I think the end result exceeded my expectations!

Pedro, these look terrific!

How in the world were you able to get these two done in a week??!

And on day 8 you rested, I suppose? ;-)

Why the rush, other than self motivation?

Keep up the great work.

Very nicely done Pedro. What kind of wood did you use, and what finish did you apply?
Keep up the excellent work.

amazing. You definitely have a gift. I’m extremely interested in this type of work. What saw did you use? What type of wood?

Thanks for all the kind comments, for doing this work I use a scroll saw with spiral blades nº2 and nº3 from niqua,
The wood is 1/8 plywood and I use mdf painted in black for the backgroud. Normaly I use in my finish a layer of sealer and two layers of Acrylic Lacquer.
