This mallard duck pattern pair is part of our new Early Inspirations series. These are somewhat easier to accomplish and a good beginner scroll saw pattern. I strongly suggest making the larger size first if you are unsure, as they are a bit easier to cut than the small size. I also recommend creating these plaques using 1/8″ quality Baltic birch plywood.
Each pattern includes two designs in two finished sizes – a larger set that fits into a standard 8″ x 10″ frame and a smaller set that fits into a standard 5″ x 7″ frame. I chose these sizes so that you can easily purchase ready-made frames to fit. Of course, you can also adjust the size to any size you see fit.
I hope you enjoy creating this design. I also suggest that if you are just starting out to visit our Articles & Videos page to take advantage of the many articles and videos we offer to help you get started or to give new ideas. You may also benefit from our beginner class book: Getting Started With a Scroll Saw, for a more comprehensive look at many of the questions that beginners ask.
