Default Eagle saw,,, gotta fix the frame

The eagle saw is done pretty much and I put the backer board in and it fit like a glove. I have to fix two of the corners and possibly plane down the backer board just a tad so it would fit better and not too tight. I think I did a great job on the frame. I cut down one that Ward had started and it worked out real nice. Here is what it will look like when I can hang it up. Enjoy. Fay

Nicely cut. I recently cut the same pattern. I like your idea of putting it in a frame, as I simply put a backer under it to make it a stand alone piece. I'll have to think about using more frames in my work..

Thanks for sharing

I used the frame and backer this kind of backer board is because that wood is very thin and I felt like it could break so the board will give it better support. If I can't fix the frame I will have to take it in to get it framed and that cost an arm and a leg. I may end up leaving it unframed. Have a great day Fay

looks great! I like the contrast. Did you put any finish on the eagle or leave it as is?

I put a clear semi gloss finish on the eagle and used a dark walnut on the backer board and then put the clear finish on that also. Then fitted the frame on and glued it down and then put the eagle saw in the center. Thanks for the nice compliments on it. Fay
