Views:	55 
Size:	44.7 KB 
ID:	71526 Made this out of 3/4" pine , had to be real careful on the Razorback scrolling for the pine is soft wood and trends to bust out with real detailed scrolling . I was real careful and all worked out well - Primed,painted and applyed several coats of clear gloss glaze... any comments welcomed ....MB

    Great work. I was also wondering how long something like this takes to finish.

    No problem I have not checked in very often lately it`s deer season here in Mich. I have been scrolling for quite a few yrs. I`ve been through 2 Ryobis, a Craftsman, Dewalt and have been using a Hawk for the last 2 yrs. great saw.

    Doesn't take to long at all cutting this soft pine Mohammad , took longer to put the pattern together - { my wife made-up the pattern for me anyway } .......I've made so many name plaque in the past I've gotton rather fast at it - unless I'm making something out of Brazillian Cherry and then I have to slow it down ....MB
