This is the companion piece I designed to go with the Bird’s Eye Maple Fretwork Dresser Tray. The subsequent pictures show step-by-step progressions of the cutting process on the scroll saw. Using a small blade, it is very simple to accomplish a design such as this. Cutting on the scroll saw is quite relaxing, I think. I finished the frame with several coats of mineral oil, followed by paste wax. In the instructions, I will include optional rabbeting on the frame so you can use it for your own photograph if you wish. The finished size is 5” x 6.5” and the inner picture size is approximately 3” x 4”.
