Keith Fenton’s Filigree Hummingbirds were the inspiration for these projects. The hummingbirds for the napkin rings were cut from maple with the ring cut from mahogany. I used bamboo chopsticks for the shafts and small pegs purchased form the dollar store for the place holders. The hummingbird was cut on the scroll saw and the ring on the table saw with the hole drilled using a forstner bit.
I used one of Steve Good’s patterns for the vase and resized one of Keith’s humming bird patterns for the overlay. The front panel of the vase is mahogany and the side and back panels basswood. The hummingbird is another type of mahogany. The whole vase with overlay was cut on the scroll saw.
