This hummingbird sculpture is a combination of 2d and 3d scroll sawing. The flower is made using simple compound cuts and the hummer is cut from 1/8 inch thick Baltic birch ply.
The piece is delicate so I used a large solid base to give it some heft. I would not plan on trying to ship this piece. It would be very hard to get it there in one piece.
When you drill the hole to insert the bird in the flower notice the angle. He looks better flying higher so make sure you get that angle correct. The stem also sits a little angle in the base. It should angle back a little so it does not look droopy. Is droopy a word? :)
I told you earlier this week that I am on vacation. It's almost over and I actually got most of my to-do list completed. I got the shop mostly cleaned up. I rebuilt my computer room and I got a few patterns designed for you guys. I even took my wife to the movies and out to eat. Tomorrow she wants to go buy some furniture for the bedroom so I have managed to stay out of the dog house. That's what I call a good vacation. All of this came at the expense of not answering many emails so I'm sorry about that but I'll work on them a little at a time.
