Great job! I do alot of scroll work but something this intricate just scares me. LOL OK, maybe i just don’t think I have enough patience. Your nephew should love it.

That piece is simply amazing. Tons of details, I can only imagine the hours spent on the scroll saw… you should be very proud of this piece…

Looks great!! What did you use for a backer to achieve the brown color?? Much different look than the standard black that I’ve seen Jeff Zaffino use. Great effect the brown is much more ‘Western’.

I usually use picture framing mat board for the backing. It comes in a multitude of colors and is easy to workwith. I also tend to use black most of the time but on occassion other colors set a different mood.
