Silent Night by Franz Gruber, Scroll Saw Pattern

I'm still not able to get back in the workshop yet but I have been working on some patterns. Here is another Christmas themed project for you to cut. Get out your #3 blades because there are a lot of small interior cuts in this pattern.

The finished picture will be 13 inches wide and 14 1/2 inches tall. Use 1/4 inch Baltic Birch plywood for the backer board and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick hardwood for the overlays. I have not been able to test cut this pattern because of my recovery but I think it should be pretty straightforward. The real challenge here will be the music staffs because of the large number of interior cuts.

If you decide to build a frame around the outside of the picture you might want to enlarge the backer board 1/4 inch all the way around to accommodate the frame.
