Great job. I am not normally a fan of painted projects but this one is perfect. How long did the scroll work take?

Excellent design and very intricate lines. How did you manage cutting such slim portion? Mike you really have the great control in sawing.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

AlBCuttnWud – the cutting took about 8 hours total. I cut this 1/8 inch piece in a stack cut with a 1/2 piece of mahogany. (I didn’t paint it)

BertFlores58 – When I am cutting on the scroll saw, it is like meditation. I just let the wood ride into the blade. I never rush the cut and never stop unless I come to a 90 degree or sharper corner. The trick is to never stop moving the wood. After all, the blade never stops why should the wood.

Nice Work!
I like the colors.

And yes there is a certain Zen when using the scroll saw, I know it all too well.
Not many can do that. Keep up the great work!
