BACK TO WORK

I missed my scroll saw a lot. This is what I cut so far during last weekend. I worked on the cutting the shelves in 1/12th scale. These pieces were cut from Cherry. I like to work with cherry when it comes to the scroll saw.
These pieces for the corner shelves were cut from mahogany:


...some chairs...

some frames from Purple Heartwood and Bloodwood:

...and these are pieces that have been prepared for cutting, but it is different story...

UPDATE

I haven't posted for a while but it doesn't mean I haven't done anything. I sanded the pieces and stained them. I cut almost all pieces for the first floor.

THE BASE IS ALMOST FINISHED...

Today I cut 5 pieces more for the clock. Tomorrow I am going to cut 45 degrees out on the edges of some of them to fit the base piece and to sand the pieces. I haven't decided yet what color I want this clock to be, that's why no staining yet. But this is how the base will look like:

PROGRESS ON MY PROJECT

I have first and only one follower! Birgit, thank you for your interest in my new project.
My new project is a clock. I bought the pattern of that beautiful clock 3 years ago when I had no intentions to work with wood at all. I simply was in love with the clock on the picture. Three years later when I went through my stash again (I do it constantly) I thought: hmmm, why not to try? Today I cut 2 more pieces for my new clock. I broke 2 blades already. Practice, practice, practice.
I also cut the base using a table saw and prepared other pieces for fretwork:

MY NEW TOYS

Welcome to my new blog ME, MYSELF AND SCROLL SAW!
Finally I started posting here. Today I got my new DeWalt scroll saw and worked already on it and I am very happy!

I started a new project and I am not planning to tell you yet what it is till I finish it. Here are 2 pieces I cut today:

I also made some simple puzzles for my daughter that made her busy for a while:





Don't be very strict with me, I have just started and this is my first serious project.
I made one little simple shelf a month ago using my old scroll saw and was not happy with the quality, but I am still posting an image of it:

I will put it together tomorrow.
