I had done a bit of work on the scroll saw,

What do you think, not as outstanding as the decoration Gill did, I had tried doing those e and it's quite a difficult set of very accurate cuts to get a usable result.

Looks good to me Dave. The wood looks to be quite thick which would make turning the piece for the more intricate cuts quite difficult. A thinner piece might have been easier.

It may not be as challenging but you still have managed to do a good job on it :eusa-clap:

That's a respectable piece of work, Dave. Letters are very difficult to cut with a scroll saw because everyone knows where the perfectly straight bits should be and just how smooth the rounded bits should be. Whenever I cut letters, there's always a heck of a lot of sanding to do afterwards - it ain't as easy as it looks!
