This is one of my latest project. I designed this project to sale and made one for my father-in-law for christmas so don’t tell him ok. I use 1/8 birch wood the pic is 11”by 14” in a 14” by 16” barn wood frame that I bought.It has 350 cuts and took 14 hrs to complete. I use 2/0 spiral blade and 1/32 drillbit,the project was cut out on a Hawk scroll saw. Thak you for viewing this project.

Great job Scroll, those covered bridges you have in the US have a lot of character. Makes a nice piece of art.

That is a sweet bridge ! I wish I could do that. I tried it once and the little pieces all broke away and I never attempted it again. .............Jim
