Allready have orders coming in for scroll saw work! Here’s my first finished order! Not a bad 20 bucks if I do say so myself. I’m actually kind of proud of myself!

That is some very fine scrollwork. I was under the impression that you were fairly new to woodworking, but this has the mark of a seasoned hand. The lettering is perfection.

Cool, now follow the fine tradition of wood workers everywhere and spend that on more tools! (one much more then the 20 bucks).

Is the sign cut from a triangular stock or just flat, hard to tell from the sideways photo?

Either way, nice work and nice work on the commission…....take the wife to dinner with the $20

Nice work. I wish I could do scroll work like that but not enough patience. Taking pictures upright is all in how you hold your tongue and angle your head.

Love it.
