Today is a Toni’s birthday. She is a friend and follow crafter. I have been wanting to try my hand at basic fret work on the Scroll Saw. I have also wanted to try my hand at making picture frames from scratch. Put all that together and the result was the Craft Room sign for Toni’s birthday.

I got the pattern (Mom’s Craft Room Sign) from Steve Good’s Website, “Scroll Saw Workshop”. The only modification I made is to replace “Mom” with “Toni” in Photo Shop. I also modified it to make it a framed sign. The overall dimensions of the sign are approximately 11” x 8” x 1/4”. The overall size of the framed piece is approximately 14” x 11”. The sign is mounted on light purple felt, which is mounted on 1/8” plywood. The glass is Lexan 1/8” clear polycarbonate. I much prefer working with Lexan vs. glass. It is easy to cut, light, and UV resistant.

The frame is 1” thick walnut board, cut into 7/8” high x 1” wide strips approximately 15” long. The milling was done on my router table. I needed the 7/8” height to have enough room to make a 5/8” high x 1/4” dado to hold the Lexan and mounted sign.

Be sure to visit the “Scroll Saw Workshop” website. Lots of good information and free plans.

If you are a beginner I highly recommend watching Kenny Earrings “Scroll Saw for beginners” Part 1 and 2.

All-in-all, a fun project.

What a Great looking sign. I missed that one on Steve’s site. My wife has a very good friend in California that sews and quilts. She is always making some for us and in turn I make something for her. This would be nice hanging on her sewing room
