Default A long, very long, fretsaw...

Hi all!
Several months ago I created an image from a picture of Thorin, and I've begun to make some cuts.
Sooner or later (hopefully today) I'm going to post what I've done until now.
Only, I have to change hole for the cutting every minute or so: maybe my image is a bit too much for a beginner like me. My neck and shoulders are so stiff after just half an hour!!
Bye!
Silvia.

I can't wait to see it! Is this a fretwork project?

You should cut it out of oak.

I love it !!

(I had to remove your picture of the starting pattern, however, since posting that on the forum is considered a copyright violation. You can post your scrolled projects made from the pattern, however).

I can't wait to see how it comes out in the end.

Have you had a chance to see Desolation of Smaug yet? I watched it yesterday, and thought it was fun. They did a really nice job on the dragon.

Quite the ambitious undertaking. Nice progress. Looking forward to more pictures.

If you can do this type of work as "a biginner", I can't imagine what you will be able to do in the future. It looks great.

Don't rush it, that's a very good start and a challenging pattern.
