  • Not really scrolled, but

    I started to scroll these at 45 degrees to give a mitre, but gave up and used a router.
    The young lady in the picture was a student at Purdue University-Calumet here in Hammond.
    In December 2004, while crossing the street to get to a class, she was struck by two cars and killed. Her family and friends decided to honor her with a scholarship in Elementary Education which was her major. My sister is a professor at Purdue and also the chairperson of the scholarship committee. She asked me if I could make the plaques to match the case they had bought. The plaques are genuine Mahagony stained with Behlen's Blood-Red Solar-Lux and finished with Semi-gloss Poly. After hearing the story of how she died, I only charged for the material, as her parents were paying for the plaques to be made.
    I'm kind of proud of how they came out.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    Good job on the plaques.

    It is hard to bevel with the scrollsaw and have a straight edge.
    The story is a moving one. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
