Playing Chicken

Postby Dalboy » 15 Dec 2016, 16:24

I don't get to do as much work on the scroll saw as much as I would like as I tend to spend a lot of time preparing turning work for the woodturning club competition.

Anyway one of the family likes Chickens so this was made for her as a present.

The chicken is Beech which I was going to stain with different colours but I liked the look of it as it was and I did orientate the grain in different directions. The backing board is MDF which I stained black to highlight the old bird

C & C welcome

Indeed and a lot of work. Smoothing over all the edges must have been a chore.
cheers

It took me about a week off and on, even though I did start it about 6 months ago and put it to one side.
