These intersecting word art plaques were custom designed by Keith Fenton for me. I cut the lettering from 1/8” maple and the backer is 1/2” pine that is stained Early American. I dipped the maple board into lemon oil and then glued to the backer board. The brass nails are added for effect only. I also added 2 saw tooth hangers on the back then finished the whole plaque with a satin top coat.

Great looking signs. Any problems holding it all together while scrolling? Where might a person get in touch with the designer?

Larry, I guess I didn’t explain how I did the cutting. I stack cut 3 of the 1/8” maple boards so that I have 3 scrolled boards that I then glue on the 1/2” pine backers and then add the brass nails for effect. The designer is Keith Fenton of Sheila Landry Designs.

The lemon oil just brings out the grain of the wood and makes it just “pop”. You still have to use a top coat after so the oil doesn’t keep weeping out. I picked up the item from Steve Good.

Ron, be sure to check out Steve Good’s blog. I believe that he has a video on you tube that explains this. His blog is here: http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com.
