I saw some projects on another forum by Dick Miraglia which were scroll saw carved fretwork. I knew that I needed to try it but on something simple.

I started with 1 inch thick poplar and first cut out the fretwork. Following this was a lot of carving that I did with a Dremel Flex Shaft. The background is about 1/4” thick so the pumpkin sticks out about 3/4”. It was painted with acrylic paints and top coated with shellac. I used Fairy LED lights to light it up and found a set which does several different blinking patterns and has a remote control.

This is cool! And it won’t decay into a nasty puddle.
