Default Mallard

Just finished cutting this mallard duck for a co-worker. Cut from 1/4 mesquite lumber.

Nice job. Try retaking the photo at 90 degrees and with the flash off. The glare hides the fine work you did.

There's a lot of fine detail work in that piece. You cut it well! I like it.

1/4 Mesquite!? That goes way beyond an act of friendship.
You did some fine work there with a pretty difficult piece of wood.
I think that one, the pic and the wood, gets and A+ in my book.

Thanks for all the great compliments. Denny, the pattern is from Free Scroll Saw Patterns by Arpop.
