This was an Alex Fox Pattern. Very well made pattern. It was cut on 1/4” Baltic Birch. Dipped in 50/50 clear shellac and mineral spirits. Then about 5-6 coats of semi gloss lacquer. The frame was made from African Mahogany with redwood splines. One coat of tung oil with about 5-6 coats of lacquer.
Blades used were Olsen skip tooth 2/0 28 tpi and Flying Dutchman 2/0 spirals. I have no idea how long it took but let’s just say weeks and weeks.

You certainly did a beautiful job of this picture. Well cut, great finish and really a nice looking frame.
