Horse Triptych Scroll Saw Pattern.

Click Image to Enlarge

This triptych is fairly large. Each framed oval is nearly 10 inches tall and 7.5 inches wide. Each oval is three layers thick. The backer board is painted to suit. The center layer has the fretwork and the top layer is the thin frame. All layers are 1/4" Thick.

This is a fairly large investment in wood even if you use Baltic birch plywood. Each oval can stand alone so as an art piece. If you don't have the wood to make the complete set you may enjoy each one separately.  

Another option is to print the pieces at 75%. That makes the ovals just over 7.25" tall. If you are using Adobe Acrobat DC as your default PDF printer you have several print options that may not be available in your browser PDF print driver. In the illustration below the red arrow points to the custom scale option.

A fun way to date your projects:

I would love it if you would considering the purchase of my custom Signature Coins but here is another popular option. You can easily date your project with a penny.

A 3/4" Fostner bit will drill the hole to the perfect size for a penny. Just experiment until you get the depth you want. It is best to get the coin just under the surface. This helps prevent the coin from scratching after installed.

You will need a current dated penny, 5 minute two-part epoxy, polish, and a scrap of wood with a 3/4" hole drilled to the depth of the penny.

The scrap board is used to hold the coin while you polish. It is not essential but it does help. I am just going to polish with a paper towel and Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish. We don't need a perfectly polished coin. It just needs to look nice.

Place the coin in the hole and apply some polish.

Buff with the paper towel for a few minutes. Clean and apply more polish. Polish until you are happy with the finish. You will start to scratch the coin a little if you polish too much with the paper towel.

I wash the coin with water and dry it well.

Mix a small amount of the epoxy and apply a small drop to the center of the hole. Don't fill it too much that you get squeeze out. 

You can finish off the project with spray acrylic to prevent the coin from tarnishing.

$12 per sheet of 12 coins plus $3.50 shipping
Inlay with a 1" Forstner Bit.
The perfect way to sign your work.
