      Any time when you drill a hole and do an inside cut it is called fret work.
      Technically the fretsaw is generally hand held

        Over here in the Uk Widget fret work is done with a hand held fret saw whereas scroll saw work is done on an electric scroll saw. Both basically do the same job but the only fret saws I see used these days are by carpenters scribing one piece of wood to another. If I had to resort to a fret saw I think I would take up golf.
