      Very nice work!! I especially like the saws. I find myself drawn to unusual shapes rather than the conventional rectangle. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

        I second what Mike said. Someday I'm going to have to expand my horizons. What is the size of the heart with the doves? What kind of wood did you use for the saws and heart?

          I really like the doves in the heart, The grain of the wood works so well in that piece. Great job on the symmetry of cutting too.

            Very nice scrolling. Good detail without making the bridges weak. Keep up the fine quality of your craftmansship.
            A suggestion or two about improving the quality of your pictures.
            a. Use a white background rather than the dark sofa or chair. This
            make for better contrast with the darker wood. Two large pieces
            of paper work for me. One on the back and one on the seat.
            b. If you are going to use a flash, stand slightly to one side. That
            way the reflection angle of the flash will not be straight back at
            the camera. This tip also works when photographing anything
            that is behind glass or acrylic.
            A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

              Nice work man !
              i too am particularly fond of the heart .....nice and clean. I am not consistent enough yet to achieve that kind of symmetry The saw patterns are nice as well .....I want to do one of those some day. I saw one with a bass fisherman on it that I would like to try
              Thanx for sharing

                Nice looking work. That heart struck me as my favorite of what youve shown. I will have to look for that pattern. I recall seeing it in the past and now that I've seen it in wood I really do like it. Dale

                  CraftyNY,
                  Nice work I also lean towards the unusual.
                  As a curiosity what do you charge for your ornaments?
                  I have been living in the basement for a couple of weeks now preparing for my once a year Christmas fair. I will post pictures this week.
