Wow Rita, that is really nice. I have been a scroller for over 30 years as well. Mind sharing how you make these. Is it from a pattern? I would love to make some sea life the same way.

The buffalo, eagle, and wolf are from patterns someone gave me years ago. Finally decided to do something with them. Wanted to do a horse. Found a picture of my horse rearing, and thought it would make a good project. Copied the outline and took it to my light table. Just picture what the center of you animal will include. Taped my outline to the light table, and a blank piece of paper over it. Trace the parts you need from the copy.With the horse, it was head outline, mane, back, rump. tail, belly and neck. Next tape another blank paper over this out line, adding the parts needed. This outline is slightly set in to allow for the contour of the body. The horse is 7 layers. The ears, and legs are added on 3rd layer.(including center.) Continue as before, adding final layer for this side. Remove from light table. Using center pattern, flipped over,
proceed as before, with opposite side. It’s easier than it sounds. As I have a carving background, I feel the need to carve, round, smooth, and add detail to everything I do, including, my scroll saw projects. Hope this gives you a start. Have Fun, Rita

WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR ALL THE POSITIVE COMMENTS PERTAINING TO MY POSTED PROJECTS. ONLY FELLOW CARVERS AND WOODWORKERS UNDERSTAND ALL THE TIME AND EFFORT IT TAKES TO BRING AN IDEA TO IT’S FINAL CONCLUSION. A FINISHED PROJECT. YOUR HIGH PRAISE OF MY EFFORTS HAS BROUGHT ME TO TEARS. THE FACT, THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO NOTICE AND ACKNOWLEDGE MY WORK HAS REALLY MADE MY DAY. NO MONTH. NO YEAR!!! REALLY MAKES ME WISH, I HAD MORE SPARE TIME TO PURSUE, WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS REFERRED TO AS “PIDDLIN WITH WOOD”. THANKS FOLK. YOU’RE A GREAT BUNCH! CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’RE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD! I FEEL BLESSED TODAY! THANKS AGAIN, RITA
