Default First Project

Here is a picture of my first project.

It's a napkin holder made of Poplar and finished with semi-gloss Urethane (from a spray can)

Hope it brings you experts souvenirs of yours

And, I'm not responsible for any injuries for anyone falling off their chair laughing

I like it -- I think you did real good job --be sure and keep your first piece and watch how much you change as time goes on and you get more experience.

Very nice job. Sharon makes a good point about keeping your first one to look back on to reflect on your progress.

You might also want to sign and date the project as well. Tony

That is a really nice pair of Arabian horses in that napkin holder! You did great, specially for a first project!
The horses do look more like dolphins though!!! Nice job! Dale

I wish my first piece had looked as nice as that. Unfortunately, I didn't keep it (heck, I don't even remember what it was) so I'll second Sharon's suggestion about making sure you take particular care of yours.

Great job!
I recognize that pattern Marcel, I do not think too many others on the forum would
There is a new series of patterns in the same publication. The skylines of the provinces and the coats of arms. Although the projects look complicated, once you get the hang of the blade changes you will find them not so bad.

The beauty of SSW is there is a variety of projects for all styles of scrolling which can be done by many different experience levels. If you don't get ScrollSaw Workshop yet I would recommend you do. It will provide you with tons of patterns, tips and suppliers.

Keep up the great work!

I like it Marcel.
Poplar is one of my very favorite woods to scroll - it cuts and sands beautifully, finishes well, and doesn't cost an entire arm and leg. You did a good job on it. You will get to a skill level where you can do much more complex projects, but I always think there is real beauty in simplicity. (And it is not always all that easy)
I second the "Good job!" sentiment.
