Hi everyone ! After a long, cold winter I finally made it out to the shop to do some scrolling. I have been wanting to do this picture for awhile just never quite got there. So now that I got there here it is.

This picture is done on two pieces of Pecan 1/4” each. There is an 1/8” spacer between the two. The picture itself measures 24” long x 8 1/2” wide. The picture frame is done in Walnut. It measures 1 3/4” x 1”. The thickest frame I have ever made. I really like the depth of this picture.

Finish on the picture is a light spray of lacquer and the frame has the same with two coats of wax.

The pattern was done by Terry Foltz and you can find this pattern in Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Fall 2010 magazine.

Thanks for looking and good to be back cutting.

Another great picture. I really like the 3-d affect. The frame works well also.

Very cool effect. The shadows from the 1st layer playing on the 2nd really makes it come to life.
