10” Long by 12” High by 5 1/2” Wide

It’s made of 1/4” Cherry Plywood.

It took me 6 hours to complete, I started this morning and finished this evening.

I used a Flying Dutchman #2/0 Two Way Cut Blade for Plywood to minimize Tareout.

This Design/Pattern was in one of the Scrollsaw Magazines in 2003. I really liked the Design and decided to cut it out, althou we don’t get many Christmas Cards lol, it would be kinda cool just to sit around for a Conversation Piece. Maybe if I get some good Comments and all I may try and put it up on my Store and see what happens.

Also, the Pictures aren’t very good with Poor lighting, so I’ll probably take some pictures with my SLR 10.2 Digital tomorrow and Replace these Photos with some New Better quality ones!

Thanks.

Handi

This is super, super nice! Does this “fit” together? Or did you need to secure it some other way? This is really nice Jimmy. I love it!

@Allison, They Fit together, there is a total of 6 Pieces. 1 Handle, 2 Sides, 2 Ends and 1 Bottom. The Bottom, Handle and Sides fit into 1 End piece, then the other end Piece fits on the oposite side, It’s a Friction Fit. there are Holes in the tabs also, if you wish to Peg it, but I cut it enough that it fits Snug so don’t need the pegs.

@wseand, It takes time, I just so happen to Pick up on it pretty quicly. I’ve only owned my Saw for about 3 Years, the 1st year I didn’t even touch it but a few times, the 2nd year, I started on Small stuff like Ornaments, and in about a month or two, I was doing Fret work like you see above, but I also do some Fret work that’s Smaller then you see above, if you look at my projects, you’ll see a Circle Fret work that’s more Intricate then this!

Nice piece of scrollsaw work. I really like the classic-styled patterns like that

@grosa, I am not sure. Since it’s plywood I don’t know how well it will take a Finish. If it does, I think I’ll either do Lemon Oil or a Mineral Oil something that will work in the Fretwork with ease, then maybe a Spray laquer. I won’t stane it.

@TheGravedigger, As well as I do, I thought it was very interesting. It wasn’t really that hard to cut, it was just time consuming cause of all of the cuts.

Nice work Jimmy! You’ve been busy I see. This looks like something that will be enjoyed all year around. When Christmas is over you can put your mail in it. Where did you get the pattern?

@Cozmos, most of my Patterns I got from that Free woodworking Site, I think it was called http://www.freewoodworkingplan.com/ this is where I get most of my Scrollsaw Plans at and others, well most I get from Magazines when I get out to buy some, since I don’t design just yet lol

@Sheila, Well this isn’t the most intricate one I’ve done, but it did take me awhile lol If you check out the project section sometime you’ll see a Circle Fret I done, that’s one of the Intricate ones I done along with the Santa and his Reindeers which is there also. Of course when you got time outta your busy schedule! :)
