Very nice. If you cut them properly, you could probably use the off cut pieces for a second “negative” skeleton fish display.

The wood is 6/4 cedar that I milled. The print of the fish is from a pic that I found online…I drew it out by hand on the board…only because I couldn’t figure out how to download it and print it out. And it allowed me to make the changes to create a scroll saw design, it turned out better than the original. The total length of the project was only about 6 hrs. And like I said…this was the first time I’ve ever used a scroll saw. I went through about 30 blades before I got the hang of it. In hind site a thinner piece of wood would probably been easier…but the thick board gives it a more beefier look. The length of board I used was 34”, and the neck on the saw is only 18”...most of what I cut out came out in small chunks. I sanded it smooth and rounded all the sharp edges. Then I named a piece of geo-teck cloth to the back to give it a shadowed look. I left the cedar I stained for a natural look. I’ll see if I can add a finished photo. Thanks for all the comments.

I love how you fit his fins into the bumps on the edges of the board, it really gives it a dynamic look. Great choice of print.

Have your say...
