Scroll Saw Turtle Pattern

big_deckOctober 30, 2013

Now that the Big_Desk is completed and in use, I have graduated from Big_Deck's to a 'significant' interest in garden turtles!

I have seen these two similar works of art and am interested in taking the 'frame' from the one on the left and using the 'body' of the one (two, actually) on the right - and making a Scroll Saw pattern and making it a winter project.

I am going to try to find a small (10x12 or so) sheet of white Lexan and having a go at it! From prior experience I will probably need Several sheets before I get it right.

The intention is to attach the final outcome to one of the posts that lead onto our Big_Deck and I will figure out the mounting problem when I get there.

The first step is to try to find a pattern that has either the turtle in either of the two shown - I can live with either, but I am having no success in the search.

Anyone seen one or know where I might find one?

As a follow-up, here is my first completed project - base board is 4' X 8' sheet of plywood. All other pieces are from 1X PT deck pine and colors provided as samples from One-Time deck stain.
