    You should paint it with folk art acrylic paint. Be careful you don't get the paint too thick on the inside cuts or it might not go back together properly. I've sold a couple for $ 35.00

    Post a pic after you get it painted, I'd love to see it finished.

      I painted mine with acrylics. I sold 3 so far for $50.00 each. You did a nice job cutting.

            It's in SSW&C issue 12, check over on the left 'Order back issues' it might still be available.

                Cripes, I've been giving them away!!!!!!!!
                I've made the 8ish" ones and doubled the size and made (you guessed it) 16"ers.

                          Very nice Lance. Painting can be a pain but sometimes well worth the effort.

                            I've cut probably 30 of those birds and I still am not tired of it. There is also a standing parrot from an old WOOD magazine from back in the 90's. I cut that one too. I LOVE those birds. I use the Walmart (also Hobby Lobby) paint that costs about 70 cents a bottle. Then put a clear lacquer on it. I sold those for 20 to 30 bucks.

                            You did a great job on a FUN project.

                              Beautiful puzzle. I might have to pencil that in on the top of my todo list.

                              It's all fun

                                I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                                They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                                The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)

                                Excellent cutting and choice of woods. I've made a couple of those classics myself. Thank you for sharing, and pushing me to get busy!
