    I made this this week end. I had to move the scroll saw into the house as it was too cold in the garage. The pattern is by Jacob Fowler and found in SWWC issue #65. In fact, I just purchased his book from Fox Chapel. It is approximately 8" x 10". I used 1/4" Walnut plywood and backed with 3/8" Baltic Birch plywood. I used FD UR #2/0 and #3 blades. There is one coat of 50% BLO and two coats of spray Shellac. Comments welcome

          Very nice. I think I know what is giving the bad eye. The front bumper needs to have a small bit shaved off on the right side. It looks as if there is a bump hanging down. I see it in the picture also. I think that it has to do with the lighting. I would take a straight edge and lay it on the...
