                  Rolf it was about 50/50 scrollsaw and hand held saber saw. ( Basicly a hand held scrollsaw)

                  will8989 the standing angel on the right is just under 48" tall and it is the tallest of all the pieces.
                  As for the pattern I made this pattern using Corel home and student from a photo of someone ones manger scene given to me last year. This is the second one I made one last year. I could just rescale it and make it table size but this was a request from a customer of mine. Corel draws vector drawings and these can be scaled up or down once you group everything you have drawn.


                  meflick. There is a lot of back cutting ( cutting into the piece and then without removing the blade spinning the piece and back cutting the waste pieces out.also there are a lot of holes drilled so you can cut back and forth). Some pieces can not be cut because of clearence that's were I use a hand held scrollsaw ( sometimes called a saber saw). I have a Dewalt 788 this has a 22" clearence which helps but not on everything (48" angel)

                        Might want to make sure you are using very dense wood and watch grain direction. I used a common 2 by 4 and dropped the part that forms the arch of the door. Part broke when it hit the floor. Several other pieces could easily suffer the same fate.

                        I believe some of the earlier ones do not have the quick tension release at the front of the top arm. That would be a show stopper for me. I have seen several 18" in various conditions and they usually are listed around $400.
                        Keep in mind I live in the North West and scroll saws are a hard...

                        I have always want to try a project like that, however I have not gotten around to it. Nice work!

                        Hello Everyone,

                        I currently cut with a DeWalt and a RBI Hawk 226 scroll saw.

                        I was on ebay this morning and saw local to me a Hegner M18 with stand and accessories for $800 or best offer.

                        I'd love to try a Hegner but the age of the saw has me concerned. It says...
