I cut this plaque from maple using a pattern by Keith Fenton. I stained the frame with Black Walnut Danish Oil and the inside with Natural Danish Oil. I then sprayed with a couple of coats of varnish. I glued a veneer (I think it’s cherry but I’m not sure) onto 1/8 inch plywood and stained it with the Natural Danish Oil and then a couple of coats of varnish. The backing was then glued to the plaque. I decided to leave the letter as is without a backing. One more Christmas present off my list!

Anna, That turned out great. I really like how the Walnut has streaks, it makes it look like
different levels of the ground.

Great job! This piece really highlights your talents with several very fine, parallel cuts.

What a beautiful plaque Anna! Those crisp and clean cuts really show off your superb talent with the scrollsaw!! I believe that glued veneer background may be Rosewood rather than Cherrywood, and is the perfect backdrop for the light Maple. Well done!! I bet some lucky fella will receive this for Xmas, eh?!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Elaine, thanks for identifying the veneer. I got a box full of veneers from a friend and unless it has a label on it, I’m pretty bad at identifying what wood it is. This is a Christmas present for my hubby’s brother – an avid golfer!

Charles, you are right, this is a great pattern. Keith creates some wonderful patterns.
