How many blades does it take to cut out a copper hand?

This hand is destined to be etched before it graduates to be a focal. I used an old crusty, rusty hand from a windchime for the pattern.  It's good to have old, crusty, rusty things around. They're so inspiring. I keep telling the mister that. ;)

. o O ( I wonder how many saw blades it will take.) Note the broken one in the photo. I think it was blade #3.  Apparently I need more practice sawing.

I can't wait to get to the etching...but there'll be a lot of sanding and filing before that.  Stay tuned for updates. ;)
