      well i thought there was a word for the whole thing. Ive seen similar designs hanging on walls with letters in them.

      Flur de lours,<- (french spoken with new england accent) or something like that.

      Of course i may be thinking of something else.

      thanks.....pete

        It's "fleur-de-lis", Pete.

        And I can spell it better than I can pronounce it in my OLD English accent ..lol

          .. and i just realised i had no idea what it meant other than flower of something or other ...

          So courtesy of Wikipedia: "The fleur-de-lis (or fleur-de-lys; plural: fleurs-de-lis) is a stylised design of an iris flower which is used both decoratively and symbolically. It may be purely ornamental or it may be "at one and the same time political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic and symbolic",[1] especially in heraldry. While it has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, the fleur-de-lis is particularly associated with the French monarchy. It is an enduring symbol of France, but was not adopted officially by any of the French republics.

          It appears on military insignia and the logos of many different organisations, and during the 20th century it was adopted by various Scouting organisations worldwide for their badges. Architects and designers may use it alone or as a repeated motif in a wide range of contexts, from ironwork to bookbinding. As a religious symbol it may represent the Holy Trinity, or be an iconographic attribute of the archangel Gabriel, notably in representations of the Annunciation.[2] It is also associated with the Virgin Mary."

            I'm not certain, but I think it may be called gingerbread!

            There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

              The general term for the fancy fretwork on Victorian Houses here in Canada
              (and I assume in the US) is certainly Gingerbread. Is the term used in England, Gill? I'd never heard it there..

              I'd first heard of it till a couple of years ago when Sue, my Canadian partner, mentioned it - and I hadn't a clue what she was talking about.. but then that occasionally happens .. lol Still trying to learn Canadian here ..

                There are so many words to describe that but some that have not been mentioned are
                Flourish
                Filigree
                Piercings....although when you Google that your eyes get opened!
                Inscised
                Lacework, although that is more like metal castings
                I found a nice Lacework Link

                I don't think Scroll work was mentioned either.

                  I know this is an old thread but I think the term you're looking for is 'acanthus scroll'.

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year.

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...

                    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
