I cut this out of 1/2” African Rosewood and backed it with Cherry. The pattern was adapted from adapted from a Charles Dearing design that I made a few changes to. The bird inlay was my idea to fill in the space between the staff and the wizard.I don’t usually break many blades, but I went through a few on this one.Hope you enjoy!

-- It’s all good!

That is really a fine job! I love the faces with character. In my stack of patterns somewhere…. Hope I can do a well if and when I tackle it.

How in the world did you carve all the depressions so cleanly? What tools did you use?

All done with a Dewalt scrollsaw. One hole at a time.I didn’t do a count as to how many total holes/cuts there were, but the staff was just over 100 cuts.

Great work and nice to see a scroll worker using some decent proper hard wood instead of plywood….
Well done I think you done a great job.

Thank you for your compliment and appreciation of the wood, though I find Baltic Birch has a place, too. I use whatever I think will make for the best finished product. Solid hardwoods can be more fragile to work with on some designs.
