This is the Fretwork Wheelbarrow that is featured in the current issue of Scrollsaw Magazine. It measures about 11 inches long, 3 ¼ inches wide and 4 ½ inches tall. I made this one from Baltic Birch plywood. The patterns calls for 5/16 thick material but that left me scratching me head some so I settled for ¼ inch and had to make some modifications.

I used Dark Walnut Danish Oil as a finish but found that the close grain of the Baltic Birch and the lack of pigment in Danish Oil left me with a lighter color than I wanted.

This one will be placed in The Crafters Co-OP, in Wylie TX., the consignment store where I display my products.

Thanks for looking.

That is some really fine work there Jarrell! It is delicate and pretty! I wonder why they called for that thickness of wood? I would think that they would make the pattern so that it used materials that are easily obtainable. You did a great job with it – modifications and all. :)
