I thought I would show a recent project of mine. The pattern is one of Fine Scrollsaw's. I have seen other Eiffel Tower patterns, but none come near Pedro's for realism. I think the only real challenge was the long 45 degree bevels on the legs. All the rest was simply cutting a LOT of holes . lolol.

I have cut a lot of Pedro's patterns now, and I am always amazed at just how accurate they are. If something doesn't fit after you have cut, you know it's your fault and not the pattern.

I HAVE A Trupro saw. But that's here - in the UK I think they are sold as an Axminster?? (attached a pic). I have used a few saws over the years, but it's by far the best, in all respects. The timber is silkwood (I think a type of maple, but don't quote me on that). Because the timber is only 4mm thick I used the Olson blades..#2/0. I've yet to find a better blade for this type of work.(mainly because they are less aggressive and give time for my old brain to work. lol! But they also turn a lot better). Although the FD ultra reverse come close. As I said before, the only real challenge was the 45 degree bevels on the legs and top of the tower.
Thank you for looking.

Noel
