Victorian Frame Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download Below

I designed this Victorian-era frame that will hold a 5' X 7" photo. You can use any photo you like but I decided to also make an art piece out of the frames. I added the three Victorian-era ladies that you can print on high-quality photo paper and make the triptych.

The photos are all public domain so it is fine to reproduce them if needed.

If you decide to cut three of the frames for the triptych then I suggest you stack cut the fretwork. That will make the project much less time-intensive. You could also use 1/8" Baltic birch plywood if that is easier to stack cut for you.

We Have a Winner! $25 Sheila Landry Design Gift Card

I know all of you who support Sheila and Keith over at Sheila Landry Designs will be happy hear that they finally have all their services back. Hurricane Dorian did a number on their part of the world and they were without internet and phone through the remainder of the week.

Here is an excerpt from an email I received from Sheila today. My thanks to all of you who supported Sheila and Keith through this tough time.

"We tried to get to the cafe nearby at least once a day to let people who ordered know what was up. So many of our customers are used to getting their patterns within minutes of ordering. We were worried that they would be angry or upset or worried if they didn't receive them right away. But every single person was nice and understanding. It made my heart happy. 

Please let everyone know that we are so grateful to all who sent their kind thoughts and wishes. In today's sometimes unkind world, it is comforting to know that people like scrollers look out for one another and really and truly care."

Okay, time to announce the winner of the $25 Sheila Landry Design gift card.

The winner was selected at random using an online random number generator.

Congratulations to...
