Made from a six foot long cedar fence picket. Took me about 12 hours on my cheap little Wen scroll saw, mostly in that pineapple (the design for the pineapple came from somewhere online, can’t remember where I got it). Had a heckuva time swinging that long of a piece around on the scroll saw, and if the Wen didn’t have a provision to turn the blade sideways, I couldn’t have done it. Most of it was done with pinned blades, except for a few of the smaller pineapple “chunks”.

Very nice job. Something that big would be difficult on any scroll saw. Spiral blades could have helped, but a lot of people don’t like them.

I like that. LOML loves the Pineapple as the welcome sign, she has them all over the place. May I ask what you used for your pattern for the scroller?

It was one I found on some crafting blog, but I don’t remember where. I’ve seen it in other places. Some where it’s for sale and others where it’s free. I think I got it in svg format. I used Inkscape to create the pattern for the whole thing.
