  • kokopeli

    A lady I work with asked if I could make her a kokopeli with my scroll saw.

    I made these two. My wife likes the larger one with the prickly pear cactus so friend Carol gets the other.

    I found the image on google and made the patterns from that. I cut them from 1/2" oak.

            Nice job. I make an inlay image of Kokopeli on cedar boxes that I make. It is a popular pattern here in West Texas.

              Very nice! Thanks for sharing.
              I hope I don't offend you but, perhaps you could add a decorative routed
              edge to the outside portion such as a Cove bit or a Roman Ogee bit just for
              more asthetic appeal.
              They look fine as they are but, just my opinion on something to add another
              dimensionl.

                Thank you for the suggestion, but I don't have a router yet. Perhaps someday. I have been pondering getting one with a table for projects like you recommend.

                  I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                  I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                  Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
