Ok this is my first attempt at scrolling and a small inlay, I decided to make a name plate to hang outside our house. The base board is 1/2 inch Pine, I routed the space for the name oval which is made out of 1/4 birch plywood stained with Minwax Red Mahogoney. I used my computer and freebooter font to create the pattern and than cut the name out with my scrollsaw it took a couple of attempts (4 total lol) and my origional was horrible (I posted a Pic) I think I tried to much to start with, so I cleaned up the design and focused just on my last name. The two stripes on the right and left are hand routed and than I inserted stained strips cut from the same 1/4 birch ply. I than framed the whole project and stained the frame Red Mahogoney also. I finished with 3 coats of semi-gloss poly. Thanks for looking.

Very nicely done for a first attempt. For that matter, very nicely done for any attempt.

@Christopher, brother my first one didnt turn out this well lol check out the pics you’ll see my first attempt, IT WAS UGLY, but I did some practice with other blades and seemed to catch the jist of it, My new TS is awesome so far (I think mainly because its just nice to have one) I’ve already managed to figure out lots of new projects to use it on lol.
