    Running Antelope

    I haven't been spending much time in the shop over the last few weeks, my wood working has been outside with chainsaw and loppers. I have managed to finish up cutting another Native American portrait though. This one is "Running Antelope", pattern by Seyit from Turkey. This is my first venture into using spiral blades. They take a little practice and getting use to, but I am now a big fan of them.

    Very intricate cutting Paul.
    I agree that spiral blades do take lots of practice.
    Great Job!!

    No backer board, it is 1/4" Baltic Birch and not as fragile as it looks.

    Thank you all for the nice comments.
