Fretwork Picture Frame

With a scroll saw and a few extra hours, you can turn a plain frame into this elegant one.

Occasionally, I enjoy sitting down and cutting fretwork patterns with my scroll saw. The change in pace is a nice break from my typical woodworking routine. But like any time I spend in the shop, I want to end up with something I can be proud of. Something that belongs on a mantle, a night stand, or in a grandchild’s bedroom. This fretwork frame is just the kind of project I enjoy. It doesn’t take much time.
