This is my most ambitious scroll project yet, It is aprox 21” wide. My scrollsaw is only 18”, didn’t relize that untill I started the project and then realized that I would not be able to complete it. One of our members who I have become friends with, slicksquegee, has a dewalt scrollsaw and he let me borrow it to complete the project Woods are maple sides and walnut bottom and handle. finish is minwax polycrylic in a rattle can. The wife claimed this one.

Incredible! Is the pattern your own design? I have to ask, how does one pick up said basket?
