Default Compound cut

I made these using my scroll saw and my band saw. It is patterned after a local similar piece that is made of metal and about nine feet tall. I have made a number of these using just my scroll saw that are three inches tall. These are six inches tall and made of Mahogany.

Nicely done. Love the concept.

Those are so pretty. I have wood that I can go do a little compound cutting. I just ruined a fret work horse and tree. turned out the wood was particle board and not ply wood. It was a door to a cabinet and I thought the frame on it would make it a self framing thing but it didn't work out. I'm mad now so will wait til I cool down before I go back in the shop. your pieces are great! Fay
Have a great day, Fay.

Very nice, indeed. I've never done any compound cutting, but those look so good, it makes me want to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration ( in more ways than one).

Nice job Jim. I like the color and finish too.
On a different subject - have you ever done a tutorial on your inlay work used on your boxes? I see you on this forum and whne someone mentions inlay I immediately invision your boxes. I've never done inlay and would love to learn the process. Thanks for your time.
