i made it about 20 years ago,and gave it too my sister who has it in her home ever since,i asked her too photo it for me so i could put it on here.the frame is mahogany,the main picture is made up in 3 sections ,joints covered by the 2 scrolled overlays,
oh yes ,i cut it all by hand fret saw,long before i got my scrollsaw.

Tony,that is awsome. I think I would struggle to do anything like that with my scroll saw. You are a true artisan. Thanks for posting the pics for us.

Wow Tony,
I've always had respect for your work, but this.... This leaves me speachless..!!
I own a fretsaw, but I've never cut anything with it. I just got it to hang on my shop wall to remind me of where it all started.
You actually started there. My hat is so off to you sir.
Beautiful work.!! Thanks for sharing this.....

thanks all for yere kind remarks,
jim,i too still have my hand fretsaw,which i still use,i use it if a project has lettering too be cut ,i find it best too cut letters by hand,as these are one of the first areas people see on a piece,and any mistakes are seen emiedietly,specialy as i mainly use spirals for potrait work and spirals aint great on straight lines.

Looks great Tony; I've got a pattern of the Lords Prayer which I had for 10 years but haven't had the nerve to tie into it yet. Don

thanks evie,
i suppose it is all i had at the time,the saw i used was handed down too me by one of my uncles,i got the pattern from a friend of his who done fretwork all his life,and all he used was a fretsaw also.i wish i had some pictures of his work,he was a genious,and seeing his work realy got me interested in fretwork in the first place.
