How I ended up using the large sheet of Borromean Rings I made last weekend. It will be with me in Philadelphia tomorrow through Sunday.

Final tree trunk is cut, on to the leaves!
I love how gnarly this one is. Like something from an Edgar Allen Poe story 👻

Tree trunk number 2 complete. The trunk is what counts, all these little branch ends are just areas that will support the leaf layer above it. That layer will have some gaps cut in so you can see the branches beneath, but the cartoony V’s will all be hidden. Trust me, it makes sense in my head 😉

I guess I neglected to post anything about it …

I guess I neglected to post anything about it in my feed, but this weekend in between the fridge cabinet build and getting some materials in order for the hand cut dovetail challenge, I also did a ton of prep work on the scrollsaw tree art project that I started forever ago.
I finally got some contact paper to try out @thehouseoftimber ‘s method for adhering paper templates. Previously, I just used a thin layer of spray adhesive directly on the wood, which didn’t always peel off clean and required razor scraping. Lizzy’s contact paper method works great and bonus: you get to do all those super satisfying contact paper peels! 😃
This is the first little tree that will be in the foreground and will have big leaf maple burl leaves.
To prep all my blanks, they were planed to 1/4”, bookmatched and glued, then sanded to 220. Then I add the contact paper, spray adhesive in the back of my paper template, slap it on and I’m good to scroll. Litzy has a story highlight if you want to see how a pro does it. I’m just a scrollsaw hack 😂
Now that the boring prep work is done, I hope to fit in a little scrolling here or there and make some good progress on this project. I have a story highlight so you can follow along too (I know it’s annoying when I’m jumping from project to project in every other post. Sorry not sorry, it’s how I get things done 🤪).
