I recently made a trade of my work for a Hegner scroll saw, which I feel should properly be called an electric fretsaw. It is to my Tradesman scroll saw as Rolls Royces are to Yugos. I have only begun to experiment with its capabilities and possibilities.

These pendants are about 3/8” thick. #1 – Amboyna Burl “Om” #2 – Zebrawood “Dragon” #3 – Eucalyptus Burl “Luck” #4 – Zebrawood “Ghost” #5 – Zebrawood “Love” #6 – Amboyna Burl “Peace”

I LOVE this saw!

Nice styling for the pendant!

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.

Really nice, clean cuts – I like ‘em. I know I wasn’t that good when I first got my scroll saw! I’m still not, actually.

Thank you all for the comments. This saw has given me another excuse NOT to throw away ANY scraps.

Nice work Dusty. What type of cord are you using. I like the look o fit and it compliments your pendants very well.

Very nicely done—both design and craftsmanship.

Thanks again.

Campzeke ~ The cord is 2mm leather. But the pendant holes are 3/16”, so people can use their own favorite chain or cord if they like.
