    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.

    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 ?

      That is sick...And I mean that in the best of possible ways....

      I can only imagine the cramps in your fingers keeping that thing together while you cut...

            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.

                        20 years behind a scrollsaw? Think what you could do in front of it! Hardrock

                          Beautiful work with or without a frame. Love the intricate details.

                            by Rolf
                            I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                            I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                            I used...

                            If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                            After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                            I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                            Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                            Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
