              Sure why not. I guess my vase of flowers qualifies so I've done it before and didn't realize it.

                I got to thinking about this and I would love to see some mini compound patterns. Something we could turn into jewelry like ear rings and pendants. There is a lady in our scrollsaw club that does ear rings at shows, but she paints them... very talented! And she makes a bundle. I'd like to try to do the same thing... but without painting... <--- I'm Horrible!

                  I did quite a few compound holiday ornaments last year (about 75 of them) and sold every one of them. I will be doing a lot more this year.

                    I tried the Diane Thompson ghouls a few years ago and that year my children bought me one of her books. I think compound cuts are fun, but I just don't have time for them, my intarsia takes it all.

                      Are you going to give us a project to do since there seems to be so much interest?

                        I made a little candle holder a million years ago when I got my first scrollsaw. I chopped up a piece of 2X4. I did just grab a book from the scratch and dent sale at Fox Publishing. There are a few projects in there I like. I wouldn't mine an article on a project like the flowers and vase that Pop made.

                          May I ask where that pattern is from Pop. Love the flower and vase. Would make a wonderful gift item.

                            Playing around with compound cutting chess pieces, tried the knight and it looks real good. Just trying to select the right wood that is heavy enough to feel good.
