Well done Paul.

You are really getting into the scroll saw thing with a vengeance. How did you get perfect if you didn't have time to practice?
Will your camera let you do black and white pics? Will it let you do it without any grays? There are photographic films that do this. They are used to make stark, dramatic pictures. If your camera will allow it you can take a pic that will only print pure blacks and pure whites---Does that sound like a scroll saw template to you?
1) If your camera cannot do it, can you get a filter for your camera that would produce the effect?
2) If you can find 35mm film that takes pics that way, I have a Canon EOS SLR film camera you can have. There are three lenses that go with it.
Let me know, it is yours if you want it. It is in brand new condition, as are the accessories.
By the way, do you need any old toothbrushes for your turning or other things? Or do you remember that conversation a few years ago? It was 2 or 3 hours before you went swimming in the Pacific Ocean.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
WOW that is intricate.
You do beautiful work
By George, I think he's got it. You have really found your stride in this Paul. Beautiful work. How about a quick presentation of your methods; how you prepare, the thinking process of what you cut first and last, material prep and so forth?

Awesome Paul! With your patience, I bet you can actually watch the grass grow
You definitely have the touch
The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
Sorry, I don't remember the conversation you mention, but I don't really remember much of anything anymore.....
Thank you so much for the offer,
And thanks everyone for the nice comments. I setting up to do another one. It is a turkey, very complex, more so than the raccoon was. This one should keep me out of your hair for a long time.
