Fun with the scroll saw – decorative panels

Scroll saws are great for making Christmas presents, especially when funds are at a bare minimum—assuming you already have a scroll saw. If you don’t, the The DeWalt DW788 20-Inch Scroll Saw is a great machine. It’s well made and easy to use, which can’t be said for the majority of scroll saws manufactured these days. Here are a few designs I came up with, day before yesterday. I traced the sketches into Adobe Illustrator, and then transferred the patterns to the wood. These were presents for my sisters.
