Just finished this up last night. I do a lot of scrolling now that I have back problems. It takes about 9 hours to cut this out and there are 172 inside cuts in this project. The cross is out of mahogany and maple 1/8” veneer. Keeps me out of trouble. Take care and be safe.

Looks great also. Is the maple veneer inlayed ala marquetry of as an applique on top of the mahogany. Did you resaw the veneer.

I think this is very wonderful and I would like to make one of these for my Pastor. Where did you get the pattern for this and how do I get one? Is the Christ figure an inlay or did you make it?

Great job. Is it mounted on the frame and glass in the picture? If so tell us about the glass and what may be behind it?

I mount these onto black felt with just regular spray addhesive. The pieces of wood are also held together with the spay. Same stuff that I use to put my patterens on with.

Sorry to hear the back ain’t what she used to be but the silver lining is this stunning scroll work. Thanks for sharing.

Nice Craftsmanship! I don’t know how you do it with a bad back: my back hurts any time I sit at the scroll saw for long periods of time.
