            What a lovely piece of work. Well done!

              Great work on the eagle.
              I did one of those a few years ago, had it sitting on my work bench and dropped something on it and bye bye, oh well

                    That's very good, one step away from carving...although you don't want to be carving pine per say. That is exactly what a bird would look like if you took a carving class, pre-carved. You could make those out of balsa and sell them to carvers..they'd love you to death ! I would like to add that book to my wish list for sure...what's the book called? or is it just a magazine isssue?

                      I'm curious as to why you state that you wouldn't want to carve pine?

                      Did you know that the French Canadian furniture is well renowned and recognized for 2 particulars:
                      1) It is made of pine (found in abundance here in Quebec)
                      2) from the artisan carving in the furniture done as embelishment

                      Pine is a very nice wood to carve in my neigbourhood, and makes very nice furniture with a rustic look (plus it's cheap to buy)

                      Of course, if you were to go down to specific types of pine, then I'm sure there could be a species or two that do not lend themselves well to carving. It's important to be specific to the variety level.

                        There's nothing wrong with carving pine marcel...but it's not the easiest wood to carve. If your a beginner and taking a class, pine would be good to avoid. Your totally right about lots of great things carved out of pine. Usually if you take carving lessons, the instructor likes to set you up with a compound cut picture of some sort, kinda like this here eagle. The more you can cut out with a saw, the better and easier it is to teach someone to visualize the carving. Balsa is best because the grains in it tend to cut uniformly. Pine tends to dig in more at the summer growth. I could just as easily have said that a beginner carver wouldn't want to start with oak, or wenge...but walnut is pretty good for starters, and apple carves super easy. My carving skills too, are probably not good enough for pine yet either.

                          I can't comment on your carving skills as I don't know you that well, although your intarsia tends to say otherwise from your self evaluation ;-)

                          As for the rest: we agree :-)

                              Sorry about the edit Jerry, I just couldn't resist giving it a little more "Oooomph" since they are the nice people that grant us the privilege of using this board.

                              So, of course it's Ok to advertise them in a shameless manner (just kidding) LOL

                              As recently stated by BobD, the only thing not tolerated is self publicity for the sake of selling (aka disguised SPAM)

                              Otherwise, anything (decent) goes, even naming the competition. Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts is thankful to their competitors for forcing the staff to maintain a high level of quality in their magazine, thus helping making them the best Scrolling mag available

                              That is my opinion and I hope many share it.

                                Greetings from central Indiana. Most of the good stuff I know about scrolling, I learned here. The rest was from fixing mistakes or doing stuff again because I didn't pay attention to what I read here.
                                So, ask your questions and post your photos.
