A “simple” USA outline on oak plywood. Took about 4 hours to cut this out. Very fun to do, and with a unique set of challenges. Sister-in-law wanted me to make this for her for Christmas, so I guess it’s that time of year…

#1 spiral blade (only 1!) and then lots of very careful filing and sanding to get rid of the frizzies.

I have another sheet of spalted maple plywood with which I’m going to make another. Can’t wait to see what that’s going to look like…

Very nicely cut.

Only scrollers know how time consuming and stressful those cuts were!

Just looking at this makes my blood pressure rise.
Your patience and skills were rewarded.
Well done.
