This is cut from a pattern by Fiona Kingdon. She is a scroll artist, and I mean she “paints” with a scroll saw. She does it free hand, no pattern. She has made some patterns of some of her pieces. Her patterns require a lot of patients and attention because she is not a pattern maker. It is a privilege and challenge to cut them. This is the first of four or her patterns I have purchased. I unknowingly made it even more difficult for me by cutting it in quarter sawed Red Oak. I love to cut Oak, but will never cut “quarter sawed” again. It is worth viewing her work, whether your scroll or not. It is awesome!

Simply Wonderful
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I scrolled this same pattern out of Red Oak, but I did it with a relief cut ring around it and backed it with opaque stained glass.

-- It’s all good!
