This is my second practice scrollsaw shell (made with the same piece of lumber as Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #1 – go here to see how these are made). This method was first invented by my cousin Steve Garrison.
This shell is the middle one below, also shown with Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #1 and Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #3).
I recently bought a scrollsaw, and as practice I decided to make a nautilus-inspired shell using a method first invented by my cousin Steve Garrison. I started with a really old pine 2″ x 4″ I found in my basement.
(This is the one on top below, also shown with Scrollsaw Nautilus Shell #2 and Scrollsaw Shell #3).
How they were made:
Just a snail I saw on a piece of quartz in Chapel Hill, NC.
