This project was both a commissioned piece as well as a labor of love.

Fools & Horses are a local “up and coming” band in the Baltimore area and will be releasing their fourth studio album next month. The entire band are great friends of ours for a number of years now.

The bass player’s mom is also a good friend of ours as well as a past customer of mine ( ). She commissioned me to do a replica of their new album cover on the scroll saw. This will be a surprise to most everyone at the release party to include the band members.

This took me at least ten hours worth of work from design to finish and I enjoyed every second of it! It was by far my most challenging piece of scroll work to date.

I used a single piece of poplar and cut it LP Album sized – 12 inches square. The second picture is the actual album cover – yes the tape is part of the design. :-)

Treatment was a quick soak in mineral oil.

That’s really cool. Nice to see the family backing the band. Support like that from friends will help them succeed.
