  • Stalking Leopard

    I just finished this great picture of the Stalking Leopard pattern by Kerry Hallam. It was in the magazine a couple of years back. It's cut on an 11X14 baltic birch stack of 3. I used flat blades, I just can't get used to spirals. I couldn't tell you how many hours it took. I don't keep track of time on purpose, it would probably depress me. There aren't a whole lot of difficult cuts, just a lot of them. Hope you like it!

              Great job, that is right near the top of my todo list. OOPs, My Bride just saw it. It went to to the top of my TODO list, when we get back from Arizona near the end of May. Maybe she will forget it by then. (But I doubt it)

                Very nicely done!

                I can't imagine trying to do these with a flat blade... my gut would constantly be in the way

                  Magnificent! I think it just moved up on my TD list also. What did you use for a backer?

                          Thank you all for your positive comments! These are the kind of patterns that I really love to cut. Kerry Hallam is a very talented pattern designer and I've cut several of his patterns. This one is avalable is the Spring 2009 issue of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts. Thanks again for your kind words!

                                Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                                Thanks Rolf,
                                I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                                Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                                This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
