Hello everyone.
This project is simple and resulted interesting to do.
It has a lot of merit, and I can only emphasize that it is algarrobo (hardwood) and work with a thickness of 1 ”. Wherefore resulted hard to do the draft and had to be very careful.
All credit for my scroll saw B & D.
I have thought about doing other models to give away. I’m a farmer, so a bull figure is striking. Seeketh only simple silhouettes.
Thanks for look and coment.
Greetings for all, from Argentine.

Quedó muy bueno Gerardo. Tal vez un fondo de color resaltaría la figura, es sólo una idea.
Un abrazo.

Me gusta ! I like it ! I bought a nylon “flag” with this symbol on it when in Spain in May. It’s a great image. The wood is beautiful too. Useful as well.

Great scroll work .. Love the Bull image nice to see good thick wood used. You could also just cut the shape of the Bull ! A cutting board the shape of a Bull would also be interesting.
I have made around 20 trips to Spain as it is only 2 hours flight from London so I am very familiar with this image…. Sorry as much as I love and visit Spain sadly I do not speak Spanish….
I cut wood upto 40mm thick on my scrollsaw and some real hard timbers like Wenge and Bubinga as long as you have the right tooth blade and take your time it will cut… If your blade gets Dull replace it and only use sharp blades. Nice project well done BAZZ.

Thank you very much for the comments!.
If the image found on the web and it reminded me first Spain. But I decided this image for the feeling it conveys. Not a passive bull … but represents the whole image of the nerves in stress and alert. I like. For the bearing of it almost follows that represents the bullfights … something not quite to my liking really.
Bazz … I think it’s good to learn Spanish if you are able to use it frequently. You can ask Montecristo, already perfected much their language in no time!
A cutting board?. Mmmm, no. It has very narrow parts quedarian and angles, so it would cut the grain. I see it very possible to break.
That scroll saw have? There is no risk to the engine when cutting very thick wood? Mine was fairly vibrating note.

I use a 15 year old very basic scroll saw ” Hegner Series one” with quality SWISS – PEGAS- blades. My scroll saw suffers bad with vibration so it now sits on rubber and is screwed down to a strong work bench. I have now removed around 98% of vibration.. it cuts 30mm easy and will cut heavy Bubinga at 40mm with a 7 blade reverse tooth . very slowly or you will twist and break many blades. here is a photo of my scroll saw and very small workshop of just 8 feet X 8 feet square. Good look BAZZ.
