    Yes I really do get some work done in my shop

    I make a lot of designer saw dust but I don't post a lot of pictures. Just complete a set of these layered crosses. The designer is Alex Fox. He makes patterns for scroll saw and automated processes (cnc and laser). This design is made of layers of 1/8" Baltic Birch. Every other layer (2nd and 4th) where stained with a cherry stain prior to glue up.




    This is Alex's pattern website: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AlexFoxUA

    I'm pleased to see you really do cut things in your shop Scott!
    For those who are not scrollers, the difficulty in cutting symmetrical pieces is very high and takes an experienced scroll sawyer. Super job brother!
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    Re: Yes I really do get some work done in my shop

    Did you apply a finish to the piece? If so, what did you use and how did you do it? I bought one of his other pieces and am unsure how to apply a finish since it is 5 layers and 5/8" deep with the smaller openings at the bottom.

    The one in the picture has no finish. It looks fine as is. I plan to spray it with Natural Deftoil to see if it makes it pop. Will let you know.

    Re: Yes I really do get some work done in my shop

    Very nice indeed! Don't feel like the Loan Ranger for not showing your work. I've been designing and building new cabinets, saw stands, workbench etc. for at least 4 years now. I've built a few non-shop things, but most of my efforts have been the cabinets etc. I'm going to post to my gallery very soon.
