A couple of weeks ago I uploaded a pic of the original artwork.
This is a pic of the finished item that was matted and framed. I had to wait until the local HobbyLobby had their 50% off on custom frames before posting the final version.
I used 1/8 BB plywood and Flying Dutchman spiral #1 blades.
To see how I cut the very fragile details, I made a YouTube video that can be seen at….

Hope you enjoy.

This looks like pain staking work. I showed this to my wife who scroll saws also and asked her if she would like to do this? Her immediate reaction was “No, thank you!” She knows the amount of work that goes into this, not to mention eye strain and wrecked nerves! I commend your patience and perseverance!

That’s beautiful scroll work, must have taken a long time, you have a lot more patience than I do.

All quality work like this takes patience. The result is well worth the effort, especially with something like this piece. One good one is worth more than a thousand not so good ones. Just a thought. Thanks for the video. I learned several useful things it. I am just learning the vector tracing program so it will be awhile before I start scrolling again, but this will certainly help me along!
