I needed something to pass the time last week, so I cleaned up my scrap and cutoff boxes. I usually give the majority away to a friend as starter wood for his stove, This time I decided to find a use for as much as I could. I hunted the internet for intarsia figures and found these. Bought a new pack of scroll saw blades and went to work.

Well, I’ll tell you one thing – your scrap pieces look a darn site better than my scrap pieces

These are so cute! Did you use any stain or just select wood of differing colors?

In the past I would use Polyurethane for finish – this time I sprayed satin lacquer, makes it a lot quicker getting multi coats on ib a short time
