    A few weeks back I posted the first pic to Lumberjocks and FaceBook. Several people emailed me saying that the pic was a fake and couldn't be scrolled. I even received a message from a noted designer asking if it were real.

    I finally put the project in a frame. Hobby Lobby was having their 50% off framing deal again, that's what I was waiting for. The frame still cost me 60.00.

    Today, I posted the second pic to FB and received three inquiries in under an hour about purchase. BTW....I have made numerous sales from FB.

    I sell my art framed or unframed. Most buyers that can pay for art usually don't complain about the frame expense. Some buyers purchase their frame at WalMart and wonder why the art doesn't look right. My opinion is to steer away from these sales.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Hello,
    very nice job. It's so intricate that I understand some people can't believe it's real fretwork.
    I visited your website when Steve Good presented it 2 weeks ago, I think; Is it possible ?

            2 questions
            Where do you get your pattern? or do you create your own pattern?
            What type of wood is it?
            Beautiful project, framed or not. That delicate of work, I think I would prefer it framed. DIY doesn't usually do it justice.
            Hats off to a beautiful project.
            Thank you for sharing the photos.

                    Thanks for the kind words from everyone. BUT it seems that there are still people that question my 20 years behind a scrollsaw.To see a video on how I cut this pattern, here is a YouTube link, Cutting Intricate Scrollsaw Patterns - YouTube
                    Please, if you want to discuss this pattern send me an email that isn't through this forum,[email protected]

                      I've had people look at my inlay work and say, "I could do that with a CNC". I hate it when people say that. It took me years to get to where I am.
                      Go John Henry...!!!...LOL.

                            With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

                            I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                            I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                            But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                            +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                            It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
