Default Kevin's Macaw pattern

Kevin
First let me say thank you Very Much for letting
me cut the Macaw pattern!
What an excellent pattern you created! This one
is cut on very heavily Spalted Maple 13" X 14" X 15/16". Using FDPS 2/0 blades.
Took me seven and a half hours from rough cut board
to this point. No finish on it yet. Hope I did it justice.
I had a lot of fun cutting this.
Thanks again

Great job! If you have another piece of that board, I think an owl would look awesome cut in it.

Talk about bringing a pattern to life. Wow! As I said privately Dave, that is just flat outstanding. I feel quite honored that you felt a pattern of mine was worthy of not only your time but such a beautiful piece of wood. You've absolutely made my day!!!!!

G'day Dave,
You did do good bloke.
I must admit that I get a little jealous when I see the variety of timber you blokes have available to you.
Don't get me wrong, we have some absolutely beautiful wood here in Oz, but it is more akin to working steel.
Makes great furniture but the scroll saw turns its toes up at it.

Anyhow, great cutting and nice pattern

Excellent cutting of a wonderful pattern.

John, I can certainly feel for your situation with cellulose steel. Even at 1/42" I can still feel the difference in those "exotic" woods.
