            Deep fried fruity pebbles? No wonder you can't wait until next year.

              ...and watermelon!

              Give yourself a virtual pat on the back from over here in Indiana on my behalf.

              You inspire many of us to cut better, fit better and finish better.

              When I grow up in Scroll Sawing, I wanna be just like Trout.

                thinks Jim and everyone for all the great support you have giving me...
                this message board is what keeps me going, it wouldn't be as fun if you didn't have anyone to share it with....

                now that all the excitement is over and done everything can go back to it's place and starts collecting dust.....

                the Harley is on the shelve right next to the cup cake boxes...

                the ribbons go back in the drawer to stay nice and clean for the next time I might need to show them off....

                    Brag away Trout. From what I've seen of your work, you have every right to. The recognition of your talents really helps keep the enthusiasm up and that rubs off on all the rest of us.

                      That's a lot of ribbons...
                      I'm with WD. You need to build a display case for them...(and leave room for more...).

                      I want deep fried fruity pebbles and watermelon...

                          Trout, you are an inspiration to us all. Congratulations and may many more ribbons join the collection.

                              Trout, from all the beautiful pieces that we have seen here, you deserve those ribbons & more. I agree too, that you should make a nice display case for them & not stick them in a drawer. You should be proud, I know I would be, if I could do the work that you do. Congratulations.

                                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
