This is a decorative wall plaque I made for an “GALA’ (fund raiser) for our Churches school. It contains the exact wording of the John 3:16 verse and measures 9 and 1/2 by 9 and 1/2 and is made from 3/4 Cherry. I can say – it SOLD well.

Thanks for looking.

This is a beautiful wall plaque and so nicely done. I love the Bible verse that you have chosen.

That is really nice. I have to ask where you found the design or did you design it yourself? The scrolling is really good. Did you use flat or spiral blades?

Super job! You put a lot of work and skill into that project. I hope it brought the school a “considerable” sum when it sold!
May I ask where you got the pattern? Dont think I am quite skilled enough to attempt this yet, but would love to have it in my project list

Thanks for all the kind and wonderful comments. Here is an attempt to answer all of your questions.

The pattern is found in Creative Woodworking and Crafts Nov. 2008 (now out of print). You should be able to find a copy on Amazon.

I used flat 2 S/F blades to cut this. I tend to use a smaller blade than most scrollers.

TIME: I think 10 to 12 hours total – but that is a guess.
