  • 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.

                  Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                  Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                  Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                  My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                  I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                  Was it a good idea.....?...

                  Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                  The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
