Just so this doesn't turn into a chicken blog, I'm going to post about something that's not a chicken.
I'm making a headboard for my bed. It is a silhouette of a flock of crows (it felt too nerdy to write "murder of crows"). It should look like this:
I'm cutting it out of a piece of 3/4" MDF. I printed the design on paper and then cut it out to make the pattern.
Then I started cutting with my jigsaw. It took about two hours just to cut the outside edge. I have a feeling this is going to be a long project. I drilled holes for the inside edges using a couple different size spade bits.
Still a long way to go.
