I designed this pattern a few years back and recently did a lot of tweaking to it. This past week I finally finished the project. The pattern is easier to cut than it looks, after all….its just one cut at a time.

That is some intricate SSing there. Very good job.

At my level of expertize I wouldn’t have anything but the main branches left when I finished.

This is an amazing work of art ,I can’t believe how intricate this is and that it did not break when working on it.

Two big successes here Karl, first as art, a beautiful design and secondly as a technical feat. I’ve never before seen such delicate scroll saw work. So it’s easy for you, difficult for others and probably impossible for me!
