  • 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 checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                  Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                  He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
