View of bookend.

One view of the bookends.

This is one of the centerpieces made of the compound birdhouses. Some of the birdhouses have small birds on them. They are cut the same way as the birdhouses, just smaller.

Compound scroll sawing is fun. You have a two-sided pattern.  Stick it to your block of wood. Cut one side of the pattern. Tape around the cuts. Cut the second side and pull apart your cuts. As it all unfolds, the birdhouse comes out of the middle of the wood. It is like a wonderful surprise.
