Today I decided to enlarge my “Ol Blue With Pumpkins” pattern and cut it out of 1/4″ plywood. It’s been awhile since I used a jigsaw, but I pulled it out, hoping I wouldn’t make a total mess of things.
I was alone in the studio and a little nervous, wondering if I should wait until someone was around, you know, in case I cut off a finger or something. I decided to go for it. After all, I would think a jigsaw is one of the safest saws to use for something like this. At least that’s what I told myself.
Thankfully, all went well and I love how the cutout looks after I painted it. I’ll be posting some of these in My Shop soon and they’ll be available at Back 40 Pumpkin Patch, locally.
Now I’m excited to make more!
