Red oak ‘handle’ with poplar ‘blade’. Finished with spray lacquer. Free pattern from Steve Good's website. The pattern calls for dowels as ‘fasteners’ that I omitted. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

Thank you all for looking and commenting. It was both fun and nerve wracking to do (getting around/in that building-yikes!). It was a Father’s Day present for my hubby and he decided to re-organize the shop before I finished it (which partially explains the lack of fasteners-time in the shop without him). @ Diggerjacks – Steve Good is the first website I found regarding scroll saw work-wealth of free patterns and great explanations to boot!

Wow, that’s the first time I saw this. It is a really neat project. I like the contrasting wood and the neat scene you cut out.It reminds me of Arizona where we go in the winter.

Do you have a pattern of a running coyote?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks Jim. Love Arizona! Only get to visit every couple of years. What part do you visit? Sorry I do not have a coyote. I will keep an eye out though. I’m looking for kayaking patterns…got any of those?
