I recently finished designing these delicate ornaments for the scroll saw. They are cut from 3/16” maple hard wood and the birds are overlay pieces of 1/8” walnut and ebony. There are eight total in the set. I used an Olson 2/0 regular reverse tooth scroll saw blade to cut the fine details of the scrolls and swirls. To finish them, I chose to dip them in mineral oil and allow them to set overnight. I then was able to glue the small bird pieces into place. When that was dry, I sprayed them with several coats of spray shellac to seal them. They were a fun project that I enjoyed doing very much. I hope you enjoy them!
