    They really look great but, I am not certain what I am actually viewing.
    Are some portions scrolled or are they all painted?

      I cut out all thie pieces. So every little piece is cut out.

      then i set them aside and spray paint them the proper color.

      then i reassemlble them and glue it all to a backer board.

      so the guy with the skull for example is probably around 100 pieces or so.

      I do the shading with the spray paint as well. so if you look at the blue to light blue on his hat, i first painted it blue and then shaded it with some white.

      For the face i first cut out all the pieces then painted it yellow. then i shaded it with a quick spray of green, then put it all back together.

      here is an example of the process.

      I guess the easiest explanation is that they are sillouettes. the difference is that i save the little cut out pieces, paint them and put them back together.

          You most certainly did an excellent job of hiding any entry holes from drilling!
          Great work!
          Thanks very much for the explaination and added photos.

            Hi crupiea - You have a really good technique there.

            Th effect you've got is similar to a technique which scroll saw author Patrick Spielman calls 'separated segmentation' in his book 'Segmentation'. In his case the black outlines are actually gaps between the pieces - the black coming from the backing board. This is a really neat way of adding impact to painted segmentation work, which by the way you do excellently. The fact that you appear to scroll your black outlines is impressive

            Good to see this technique shown on the forum especially as its rare we see it posted.

                I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
