Looks great. The cutting looks clean and the painting is practically flawless. Nice work

Well, from my point of view, he's nearly perfect.

Nice work.

Default scroll work

My scroll work is no where as intricate as yours is and not sure if I could master it as you do. The painting part is sheer patience and it takes me hours to paint even small pieces so that they come out the way they should.

Here is the Road Runner I did back in 2008..he is 7" tall and 7" wide and his legs are less than a 1/4 wide. I kept praying..please don't let it break, slow speed on the scroll saw helps.

You're doing quite well with it. It takes time to master a skill like scroll sawing. I don't even pretend to be good at it. Kenbo has it down. You're getting there.

Looks very good to me! I tolove how you continued the paint down the sides. Where do you display them?

I find that with the thicker wood it is not only best to paint the edges but to continue the image on the sides as well, in most cases I just add my own lines where the need to be on the edges. As for where I display them..hahahah they are on my dining room table right now. I used to keep them on my wall but removed them when I was re-decorating the house.
