Compound Scroll Sawing in 1/12th scale. Part 2

So, I prepared patterns to be cut off. I used Cherry 3/4" thick.

This is how front side looks like

This is a back side

Then I cut another side of the pattern. Here you can see front side and back side:

The swan was born!

Next I cut the shell looking holder. I think in miniatures world it can be used as a cards' holder or newspapers' holder, or just for decoration on a table.

Last but not least, a snail was born. I don't care too much about this figurine but it was nice to practice.

Here is my trio:

After little sanding the figurines have this look:

Compound Scroll Sawing in 1/12th scale. Part 1

I decided to try compound scroll sawing and of course the first thought was if I can adapt patterns to 1/12th scale.
I found the book "Compound Scroll Saw Creations" by Diana Thompson and picked up some patterns from it

I prepared the material to be cut

and... tomorrow I will work on it, it is too late right now.

Good night!
