I had been dying to get a scroll saw and expand my home wood shop so when I finally did pick one up I had to give this project a go. I had seen something similar on Instagram by this amazing creator (https://www.instagram.com/avaberrylane/). I fell in love with her work and wanted to give it a try; on a much smaller scale. This was my test run of my scroll saw and a fun project. So here is my take on her awesome wood rounds. It hangs at my front door with two signs I made (one missing it’s frame, don’t mind that – my projects always come last!)
HOW I DID IT —
I started out gathering my wood, lining it up and drawing the circle.
Time to stain and paint. I stained three in different shades. I painted two in different blues.Now was time to cut out the R. I had no idea what I was doing or how I was going to attach the pieces back together. At the time Kathryn didn’t share just HOW she made her rounds, so I had to guess. Now that she shares her skill with us all I see that I went about this all wrong. I learned a lot though. She attaches her wood together first, then cuts out her word/letter/shape. I cut mine all out, then glued them to a solid round wood background. It worked, but I see how hers works so much better and is probably much easier. I may have to attempt this again now that I see how she does it.
