I would say if that is your first scroll sawed project Jeff, you did very well. Did you stack cut the sides?
That will be a very useful gift.

Hi Jeff, This is very cool! Made even more special that your in-laws surprised you with the milled cedar gift and you returned the favor from the same tree. Well done!

Thats really nice scroll work and I dont think you could have picked a better wood than cedar for this.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Have your say...
