I’ve got to say this project was by far my most rewarding. For one I was able to use a saw that was literally gathering dust in the far corner of my shop because I hadn’t used one since middle school in the early 80’s. But as is the case I was browsing the various projects and noticed some nice trophies and thought to myself that that would make for a great reintroduction to Mr. Scroll saw. However, I didn’t get mine finished overnight. The silhouette is cut from 1” pine. Yeah went through my entire stock of blades and had to go hunting for new ones and to my surprise they make many different types! LOL But after some serious discussion with my sales rep everything went great. And because of the time spent on the silhouettes I got crunched and had to cop out and purchase some hemlock rosettes from my local Menard’s. Then a late night and some quick lettering and here we are. What you may not see in the photos is the 1/2” vinyl letters that I personalized each one with. The trophies were hit. And that my fellow jocks is the best form of payment!
In the future I plan on using my scroll saw more often!
