My Latest Scroll Saw Work

Posted by The Scroll Saw Lady on 18th July 2008

Here is my latest work, which I did for my niece for this coming Christmas, so… be quiet and don’t tell her! 

I know I definately am not a photographer but I think you can see some of the detail in this work, all done on a scroll saw.  Remember again, I taught myself how to do this.  It is not that hard to do, very safe to work with a scroll saw. (the most I have ever done is cut a finger nail and I have cut off more finger nails while chopping food for dinner). 

My niece Breann just loves horses, and takes riding lessons so I know she will just love this picture.  She got her love of horses from my brother (her father) so, I am going to work on the little boy and his horse next for him.  Wonder if I can get it done in time for Christmas too?

I don’t come up with the idea’s for these pictures, I get them from “Scrollsaw” magazine, or buy them from one of many woodworking outlets that sell scrollsaw designs.  So, you don’t have to be some artsy fartsy to come up with this stuff yourself, I wish I could come up with this stuff myself, I would be making some money selling my designs.  But, no luck, no drawing skills what so ever in my future!

Beauty Of Scroll Sawing

Posted by The Scroll Saw Lady on 17th July 2008

wolf-and-moon.JPG    Scroll sawing to me is way to relax, to create beautiful things, and feel a sense of self accomplishment.  To know that I made this piece of art with my own two hands, and never did I have any formal training, just a desire to learn and the ambition to get out a try it.  This is a piece I did fairly early on in scroll sawing years.  It is made out of oak.  The picture isn’t great I know, but it is really is a wolf howling at the moon.
