These are the ideal size for hanging in a window and letting the sun shine through the plexiglass. They were fun and I enjoyed making them.

The picture measures 8” x 8” x 1/4”, thats with the plexiglass, and Baltic Birch. I finished them with spray poly. I put fishing line so they could hang from a suction cup in the window. The colored plexiglass is attached to the back with epoxy.

The pattern is designed by Volker Arnold and I got it out of the Scroll Saw Workshop magazine, summer 2006.

Very classy, even exquisite!

I love how the frame isn’t just your average shape, but includes the trees and branches.

The plexi is a really good idea as well – I’ll have to remember that.

Great work Kelly!

these are so beautiful, i dont know how you make cuts so small, there must be a step in scroll sawing i dont know about, would anyone who scrolls teach me something here, how do you make such small cuts…well besides my inability to know how you do this, you have done it so well that these are such beautiful pieces of art..
