Plywood scraps into a scrollsaw fruit bowl

Watched a video on Ytube on doing a scrollsaw bowl. I had a collection of small pieces of plywood and left over segments from previous projects that I have been gluing together with the intention of making a cutting board or similar. My scrollsaw has been collecting dust for a couple of years and thought I would give scrollsawing a go.
Not as easy as it looked getting the damn blade to follow the lines of the pattern, after a couple of attempts I finally came up with this one. Can imagine the experienced scrollsawers rolling on the floor laughing but comments welcome.

I think you have changed my mind and I’ll go back to turn plywood again. I see this side of PW in wood turning for the first time. I used to hide it with any solid timber but I was wrong. It looks very nice new idea.

That’s really neat Bob, like you said, a good use of scraps. I couldn’t figure what you had done until the mention of the cutting board.
Well done.

Bob.
