Fancy Peacock Scroll Saw Pattern.

The graphic for the Peacock pattern is from Clip art image by Cliparts.co. I modified if for use with the scroll saw. The graphic was a stencil. I used it to make a contoured shape which I cut the stencil out of. This gave me the beginning. I modified the position of the cutouts to make them easier to cut then I added a contoured backer board to finish the project.
