A bit of a challenge.

Click image for a larger view.

This pattern of the last supper will be a bit of a challenge for new scrollers. The pattern is over 20 inches long so it will be easiest cut with a spiral blade. You will need a board 22.5" long and 8" wide. I recommend 1/8" Baltic birch ply.

I have not cut this pattern. If one of you seasoned portrait cutters give it a try I would like to hear feed back if there are any problem areas.

Scroll Saw Jewelry

This pattern book has earrings. Each earring has a letter of the alphabet. These need to be cut from 1/8" thick material. Wood, Plexiglas, aluminum would all work well.

You can either buy the links and hooks or make your own from jewelry wire. I made the ones in the picture but they could look better with practice.

I used a #3 scroll reverse blade to cut these but I think you could use a #5 for most of the cuts.
