Thanks for the compliments. i have used spiral blades on one othere project, the tree outlines looked like they would be okay with the wavy edges, kinda wish I had cut the eagle with a regular blade for a cleaner line, but made that first cut and decided to just do it.
Not an exact time count but around 20 hours total including the board prep time.
This will go to my parents, Dad is 86 and Mom 80, they are my “Eagles”

Somehow, I missed this project, but you’ve done a very nice job on your scroll work. Great passage. I love it!
