Well, so here it is, the Hawaii State quarter. It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. I would really love to hear some feedback, good or bad, I've got thick skin! LOL

One of your best yet! The sharp edges and smooth corners exist in perfect harmony. Very cool and unusual look. The correct parts definitely stand out. I love it!

Bearing in mind that I'm not even sure what a scrollsaw looks like and I don't cast either I think it might look better if the islands weren't connected to the guys robe. The Kansas one looks great.

LOL, so I went back and looked and laughed hysterically!:biggrin: Not sure if for the same reason though. But that is a good point! I guess the reason i went that route was because it was closer there than anywhere else on the quarter without looking out of place, but dang it, now i think it looks even more outta place:rolleyes:

The quarter is very cool but I wonder if it would show better with a different background. :confused:

I may be asking you some scrollsaw questions soon, :wink: ... I have to clean out some of my dad's things and one of them is a scrollsaw. Over the years I've had just about every tool imaginable ... but never a "working" scrollsaw! :)

sorry i missed your comment Lenny. Sometimes it can be challenging trying to photograph these quarters, i will try and retake another tonight, see if i cant get the lighting right. Ironically, I take these with my phone and edit them, then upload straight to the forum. the lighting is from my scroll saw and an additional light from above, but the pinkish tone is from my hands blocking the light as i hold the phone steady to take the pics:biggrin:

Make the big island bridge over to the second line of type instead of his robe. But you probably already thought of that.

Actually, i hadn't thought of it. usually what i do is connect it in the closest place possible. I may take the dremel to it later tonight and see if i cant remove that connecting point to the robe. It's just so fragile:eek:
