    This is one from Gary Brownings book of Civil War portraits. Pretty easy to cut. It's 1/8" BB ply.
    Got the frame from a thrift store. I was going to leave it rough and a little worn, but looking at the photo of it, I think I'll refinish it.
    Thanks for looking.

          I think it looks real good. Maybe rough up the frame a little more! Don

            Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

            Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
            Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
