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.
