This is from an Alex Fox pattern. It is cut on my scrollsaw out of 1/4” Baltic Birch, oiled with natural Danish oil and mounted on a 1” Poplar board stained black. It has 366 cuts and I wasn’t sorry to finish it without blowing out any bridges. Mr. Fox lists this as “ intermediate “ level. I found it pretty darn challenging, and I scroll almost everyday.

-- It’s all good!

taterjoes,

Nice work looks great.

How many hours do you think you have into it and what blade did you use to cut with if I may ask.

Thanks

I used mostly size 1 Flying Dutchman Ultra Scroll Reverse blades, though I did use some #3’s and some 2/0 ‘s on some really tiny cuts. The original design size suggests 12” squared, but I reduced it to 9” square. Including glue up and staining, but not drying time, my guess is that I had about 24 hours of total cutting time.

-- It’s all good!

That’s a lot of time well spent on a great work of art.
Thanks for the info on the blades.

Very nice cutting! Reducing the size as you did makes it even more difficult. Congrats on a great picture.

This is crazy…...it hurts my brain just to think of the stress this would cause me if I were to consider doing a project like this.
Well done.
