My first attempt with the Scroll Saw. Made from 1/4” oak sheet, “Its A Girl”. For my Grand daughter, gave to the happy Mommy and Daddy on Christmas 2011.

Looks good from the angle of the photo – You need to take a picture of it head-on so we can see the effect of the cutting.
Also, what kind of wood is that???

I took several pictures of it, head on….but always got the flash flashing back at me from the glass frame. But, this is the best picture I could retrieve. The wood is 1/4” oak, lightly stained in mahogany, clear lacquer finish. I had it professional matted and framed. Since I don’t consider myself a professional in framework…:). Hope this answered your question. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the at-a-boys. It took me two days to cut, four blades (kept breaking), and two additional days finishing (not including the matting/framing work, this took an additional week). Again, thanks for the kind comments and for looking at my projects.
