Default Just to say hello!

Hi. I live in the U.K. (SW England). In retirement I decided to try scroll saw work, thinking of maybe making childrens toys. However, I am now hooked on segmented animal portraits. I have been searching the internet, so far without success, to find patterns for a foxes head. Any suggestions? In the UK it is impossible to obtain the many species of wood available in the States- even a full range of wood stains. Planed timber is in standard sizes- for half inch the max. width is 9 inches. From 9 inches up to a max of 15 inches it's 1 inch. The timber, packed in shrink wrapping is so fresh that it would probably grow if pushed into the ground! My saw will take both pinned and plain blades but the plain are held in small clamps tightened with allen screws. Oh for the luxury of a saw with movable arm and tooless blade fitting. Never the less it is a great hobby. Best wishes John

Welcome to the forum from TN, John. I did an intarsia Red Fox some time ago. Intarsia is similar to segmentation, so the pattern might work for you. The pattern is by Kathy Wise. You might want to check out her website.
