I upgraded to a Carbatec 21" scroll saw (rebranded EX21) at the start of the year and here are few of the projects I've completed. The saw is an absolute joy to use compared to my old clunker.

The helicopter and plane are made of 9mm (3/8") jarrah and 19mm (3/4") tassie oak. They're about 15cm (6") long.

I've got 4mm dowels going through the body and corresponding holes in the fenders. The middle section is pre-glued so in total there are only 3 main parts plus wheels, axle pegs and nylon washers. 2 layers of 19mm (3/4") pine for body and 12mm (1/2") fenders. 32mm (1 1/4") wheels.IMG_20190328_100823a.jpg These colourful batmobiles were made using a free plan from an Australian site. I still need to work on getting a nice smooth finish. I'm so impatient when it comes to painting. I used 30mm thick pine for body and 12mm for fenders. 32mm wheels.IMG_20190405_174919edit.jpg

Every one of these could qualify for display in a toy museum or fine gift shop. Beautiful work with exacting craftsmanship.
