    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 ?

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

            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.

                            Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                            Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                            My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                            I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
