I am blessed to have two wonderful step-children that I consider as my own. Today my husband, daughter and I were in the garage and she was watching me cut some wood on the scroll saw. I decided to trace her hand and see if I could cut it out. Well here is the finished project. I still have a lot of work to do on turns. I could not get my turns as tight as I wanted them but I would not take anything for this small project. It is something my husband and I will cherish always. Hope you enjoy.

Way to go Pinky. Just keep cutting anything you can find and pretty soon it will come easily.

What a great idea. I think my grandkids would like to do it themselves. My 6 year old is a wiz on the scroll saw.

See, you’re already getting rewards from scrolling. I know you’ll keep those forever. Don’t forget to date them.

This is a nice project. I have made copies of both my grandsons hands and have been meaning to do the same thing. This is something that you will cherish. It is destined to be a family heirloom.

Good job. Another project that you might try is have a step-child set in a chair. set up a light and trace a side head shadow on a sheet of paper and cut that out.

Deputy: Great job, I had never thought of that, but I bet it would be great in a picture frame box for grandmother and mother

Or it would be a good place to hang the pink hancuffs when you’re not using them to keep hubby out of your hair. :-)

It’s the reasons for making a project that I find the most interesting in the post, and it’s the reason you’ll always cherish this, good work.

fantastic.
Now I’m envisioning a series of hands (same child) taken every year on his/her birthday and then glued together to make a 3-d sculpture.
