Spent the better part of the week working on this. It’s Alaskan Birch on Walnut, finished with natural Danish Oil. My wife designed our logo from scratch (pic 4: copyrighted of course). It’s a total of 26.5” x 26.5” and the logo is 18” in diameter (see pic two for perspective). It took me many hours to scroll this and really suck at it. The only good thing about that is it will be real easy to prove a CNC router machine or laser absolutely did NOT cut this, lol. Pic 3 shows a bit more relief (1/2” Birch). Didn’t know if I should show this or not at risk of what may seem like self-promoting, but I figure no one on this site (most who do better work) could possibly be considered our market target audience, and this was still a plain old woodworking project.

Scrolling…ugh. Never did one this size or complex. I definitely learned a lot.

If this work “sucks” I can’t imagine what good work is. I find it exceptional. It is somewhat like an Escher (sp.) painting. It’s hard to distinguish between the positive (birch) and negative (walnut) spaces, which is the effect it is supposed to have I imagine. Your wife designed a beautiful logo and you executed the wooden version of it perfectly. Kudos!

Great job Troy, and kudos to your wife also.

I don’t think you will ever find me doing that. I am interested in learning relief carving, sometime in my life…(-: but although I own a scroll saw, I don’t think that will be a focus. Perhaps not for you either, but it is nice to know how to do it for projects like this that need it.

You really underrate yourself, looks very professional…....

Looks good to me. Large projects can be a real pain on a scroll saw, but it looks like you handled it just fine. Your wife did a nice job designing the logo also.

I can’t really be a judge, but man, that’s really impressive to me. Congrats to you and your wife the designer—great skill on both your parts! Love it.
