Good morning,

I made this as a gift for my wife for our 36th anniversary.
Cut on my dewalt scroll saw from 1/4” baltic birch, and painted.
The frame is quatersawn white oak…or is it riftsawn?? There are maple splines in the corners…not shown
With the frame, it’s 10 1/2” x 13”
I don’t remember where I got the pattern from, but it’s available on request.

I gave it to her a month early, because I didn’t want it getting dusty in the shop. I’ve made hundreds of things for her, and this is her favorite.

Hope you like it too.
