Wasn’t sure what I was looking at originally. Zoomed in and now I can truly say; very impressive.

Thanks, Tony, the capitol letters to the bottom of the line under each word is 5/8”. The lower case letters to the bottom of the line is 1/2”

this is just incredible, I can’t imagine the number of hours put into it.

Thanks for posting.

My first impression was you had to have a laser carver of some sort. The design, precision and accuracy are exquisite. You are a master with a scroll saw…
Funny, so much text in your work…yet apparently you are a man of few words. If I may ask, could you tell us more about your work?

Thank you all for the kind words.

For blades on this project I used a Flying Dutchman Penguin Silver blade, size #2/0 on the text and a #3 on the fretwork. The fretwork, top, bottom, and sides are all in two pieces each that can be stack cut. I do not like to stack more than two at a time. Some people do more. The corners are also stack cut, which means you can stack pieces of wood and cut several like pieces at once… The Text of coarse is the hardest most time consuming part.

I use 1/8” Baltic Birch on the scroll work, the medallions are 1/4” rosewood. The backer is stained 1/4” Baltic Birch.

I do not keep track of the time I spent on it, but most the time was spent cutting the text. The second hardest part of this project is gluing the text on. Getting it spaced correctly, and keeping it straight. I think I finally have a system worked out for that.

Only a story could make this piece better, truly art of the finest type. Incredible work. It’s humbling to look at pictures of it. I imagine seeing it, and touching it would be quite the uplifting experience.

Very nice work, thank you for sharing, and congrats on being recognized for this fine work.

Amazing amount of detail. Beautifully done.

One question – what type of glue do you use?

Now, this is really a keeper. I know you stack cut the fret part, but do you stack cut the letters as well? In years past I scrolled signs like this, but eyesight is not as good.

I did not stack cut the letters per se, I did use old pieces of paneling as backers to help with any tearout on the back of the letters. A person could stack cut the text if they were making more than one of these. Each line of text is all one piece.

BB1, sorry I missed your one question. I used “Titebond Quick and Thick” glue. I bought it some time ago and the more I use it the more I like it. It is very thick, so it does not run, very tacky, and dries clear. I surprised I’m don’t hear more about it.
