My first Scroll-saw Plaque

There’s a clerk at my local big box home improvement store that has been asking me for more than a year if I was ever going to make a ‘57 Chevy. So I finally asked her if she meant a 3D toy or a plaque. “Why a plaque”’ says she. I showed her a catalog of patterns and this is the one she chose.
Since they were thin I was able to stack cut two at once. A little clean up, mounting in the frame, and it’ll be ready for delivery.

Learned a couple good lessons about planning your cuts before you make them. Had a couple parts that I was really sweating breakage because I got the order wrong. But it all was good in the end.

Thanks for Looking.

I had to enlarge them to understand how you cut them… it just looked like a great drawing.
Excellent job.

That turned out nice. I keep threatening to do some scroll saw stuff, but that’s as far as I have gotten.

As an avid scrollsaw junkie; I do know how tough that was to do!


The scrollsaw is my weapon of choice. I have owned one for over 60 years. I actually have that one although due to it’s very limited abilities I do not use it much!

Very nice work scroll work. The 57 Chevy is one of my all time favorite cars. The design still looks great after all these years. I was 17 yrs. old when they came out.

I had a ‘56 when I was in high school in ‘67, bought it for $175.00 and sold it a year later for $250.00. Sure wish I had that car now!!

Great job! My dream car in high school was the ‘55 but the ‘57 came in second. Great cutting and the presentation is awesome.
