This is my latest design from a pic I took of one of my brother’s friends. I had as much fun designing and cutting the project as he had playing the fiddle that night. The wood is 1/8 birch and I used 2/0 spiral blade, the project took 4.5 hrs and has 110 cuts. Thank you for viewing this project.

Todd, as always first rate work. What are the dimensions on the piece?

Great work once again. You must spend a ton of time working on the scrollsaw. How do you find all the time.
