Wow! This scroll saw work is full of a lot of fine detail. I don’t see how you had the patience to do this but you sure did a fine job on it.

I started it in early February of this year and finished about a week ago. Although the plans didn’t call for it , I thought that the dark mahogany would be a nice touch.thank you for the compliments
