After the Morgan I was looking for a simple project to play with something my wife might like.
Found this Gold Fish pattern over at Steve's scroll saw site.

It looks like a simple project but I miss counted how many holes I would need to cut. LOL
It was a great skill builder as I really got my speed up having to change the blade so much.

Thanks Steve for another great pattern to play with, and also all the info I needed to get up to speed in my new scroll saw adventure.

It’s made with poplar and Danish oil as a finish.
The poplar has a little green tint to it as a lot of poplar does but this will turn a golden brown in a year or two.

Great looking job. If it was gold it would look real. There sure is a lot of blade changing on this one.
