Good morning friends! As I like to use my scroll saw to cut this kind of work. I decided to cut this stag’s head is more detailed than another already cut! I have to learn to paint on MDF! Some useful information is always welcome! Hope you enjoy!

Wow! That’s very nice. How did you determine the variations in sizes of each sheet as well as the spacing between them. Was there any math involved or just played it by ear. Anyway what ever method you used I still think it is a masterpiece after all, art is beyond mathematics. More power.

Impressive. Obviously a lot of thought went into it before any actual work was done. Very cool.

Awsome man.
I have a feeling you just wing it from the start! either way I like it. arent scrole saws fun? I have a couple projects I think you would appreciate bud! Im new to this site, but i will start posting som pic asap! well painting MDF… that stuff will suck up the first two coats you give you have room for error. If it were me I would polyurethane it at least ten coats, show that piece off! dont hide it with paint! you have inspired me with MDF… you could even blow tourch it lightly before you polyurethane it too! That would give it shadowing! I just scrolled back up and saw this thing painted baby blue??? its still cool man but paint was made for drywall and hiding mistakes. Even with MDF

“moose head”? It must be one of those moose that lives near a nuclear power plants, discharge stream. Looks real nice. Must have taken a lot of time to saw out all those curves.

Moose & I live around each other & this is not a moose. Somebody led you astray on this. It’s more representative of a deer, because of the face shape & the antler configuration. None the less, it’s an interesting build.

Now that has to be one of the most creative ways I have ever seen anyone use MDF. Wow great, job.

Never seen anything like it= cool and original! I’m sure calling it a “moose head” was just an accidental slip. Very cool and modern looking though :)

This is just like a scaled up version of the animal skeleton models I used to enjoy building as a kid:

Great job on this.

Very entertaining. I think it looks good unpainted. Adds to the minimalism of the idea.
