My first Scroll-saw Plaque

There’s a clerk at my local big box home improvement store that has been asking me for more than a year if I was ever going to make a ‘57 Chevy. So I finally asked her if she meant a 3D toy or a plaque. “Why a plaque”’ says she. I showed her a catalog of patterns and this is the one she chose.
Since they were thin I was able to stack cut two at once. A little clean up, mounting in the frame, and it’ll be ready for delivery.

Learned a couple good lessons about planning your cuts before you make them. Had a couple parts that I was really sweating breakage because I got the order wrong. But it all was good in the end.

Thanks for Looking.

I had to enlarge them to understand how you cut them… it just looked like a great drawing.
Excellent job.

Dan,

That turned out nice. I keep threatening to do some scroll saw stuff, but that’s as far as I have gotten.

As an avid scrollsaw junkie; I do know how tough that was to do!

NICE JOB!

The scrollsaw is my weapon of choice. I have owned one for over 60 years. I actually have that one although due to it’s very limited abilities I do not use it much!

Very nice work scroll work. The 57 Chevy is one of my all time favorite cars. The design still looks great after all these years. I was 17 yrs. old when they came out.

I had a ‘56 when I was in high school in ‘67, bought it for $175.00 and sold it a year later for $250.00. Sure wish I had that car now!!

Great job! My dream car in high school was the ‘55 but the ‘57 came in second. Great cutting and the presentation is awesome.

This turned out nicely. Your scroll sawing is very clean.
