I got a scroll saw for Christmas (I have a great wife!), and this was my first project. I have a 9-year old boy named Calvin, so I scanned the cover of a Calvin & Hobbes book and printed a template. The design is cut out of a piece of 1/8ā€ Baltic birch, mounted over a base of walnut, with a walnut border. The final pic is my flip-top cart with the new saw installed next to my make-shift belt sander table.

What a great wife you have, not to mention if this is your first work on a scroll saw you are already pretty handy with it! Super cute nameplate for your son :)

I LOVE THIS!! I’m a HUGE Calvin & Hobbes fan, and you did a great job.

Have your say...
