First of all, if this looks familiar then you have a great memory AND you are looking at far too many of my projects! ;-)

This IS a repeat order for the same artwork for the same person – LOVE when that happens!

It means that I don’t have to take all the time to re-create the pattern – bonus!

The original work was done on a white oak piece of plywood – this time I used birch and decided at the last second to have the grain of the wood run vertically – I think it really works with this piece!

The piece measures 12×12 inches.

A soak, as always, in lemon oil and backed with thick felt.

Photo two is the original graphic this was modeled off of.

Photo three give you a better understanding of the cutting involved – a few folks took a look at the first pic and thought it was an ink stamp. :-)

Photo four is just me playing around with photoshop – kind of like the purple myself – GO RAVENS!

What kind of scroll saw do you have?

That seems like a lot of guts suspending the Ravens name with those small stringers.

Very impressive scrolling. Too bad it isn’t Pittsburgh.

Steve,

I own a Dewalt DW788 and I LOVE it! It has given me more confidence in my cuts since I can totally depend on this tool. I only used #1 blades on this one – I have been known to go down jeweler’s blades for some of the cuts I make…... Now THAT gets dicey. Also, I have snapped a few pieces from time to time – you just start over and be more careful – after you curse a lot and throw things. ;-)

As far as suspending things, I’ve taken many more chances than this – take a quick peek at this one:
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29101 AND it was done on solid Cherry – a very brittle wood! ;-)

Brian – I grew up around Harrisburg and all my family owns “terrible towels”. I take a LOT of ribbing when the Steelers beat the Ravens. I just glad that it doesn’t happen too much! ;-)

Great job. I enjoy your scroll work. As a fellow scroller, I appreciate the effort and am always motivated by others work. I also have a dewalt DW788 and enjoy every minute I spend using it.

DocK,

I COULD do a Steelers Logo, but I only do #1 Division Teams…... Oh, I’m sorry…....... ;-)

At least you have a Terrible Towel to cry on….... :-)
