Hi William;

This is fantastic. I can’t imagine the hours you spent at the scroll saw! I don’t think I have the patience for that.

Incredible workmanship.

Absolutely INCREDIBLE, William!!! You are amazing! What a truly wonderful work of art you created! It is wonderfully beautiful. I wish I could see it in person, as I am sure it is even more spectacular.

I’ll add my WOW to those before. I’ve done enough scroll work to fully appreciate what you have accomplished. You’ve combined the qualities of persistence and patience with loving care to execute a treasured fixture. It would require a pretty high ceiling to present the fixture too. Now perhaps a fine ladder to light the fixture?

Very nice. Was this a weekend project :) With projects like this there is only one question that comes to mind. How if any will you apply the finish if it is glued together. You did an awesome job.

-- Have a great day.

Wow – tremendous job. I’ve got a whole new respect for the scroll saw artists out there.

Good luck topping this with the next “challenge”!

I haven’t done any scroll work, so I can only imagine the hours, patience, and sore eyes that you ordealed to complete this most intricate of works.

Truly amazing! That is a disgusting (in a good way) amount of detail, to say the least.

Are you leaving it as bare wood, or guilding it, or something else?

How much does it weigh?
