Hello Eric ,did you simplifie the frames ,they should be 12 pieces double framed and yours looks like 4-5 pieces single frame?Yesterday I started cutting the pieces for Frame 1, did a rough cut using the band saw and a final cut with the scrollsaw, the low and high cuts were that undulating that you would need a 4 wheel drive to navigate them. So I decided to cut the whole frame, the timber I am using is 12mm thick, just shy of a half inch. The problem(if you can call it that) is that the timber planks are 4 inches wide and each frame is considerably more than that, so, halve the frame and cut the two remaining pieces out of the internal scrap wood. You know, I frighten myself with these flashes of brilliance, actually it is not a flash more like the glow from a dying candle.
The pieces were all cut on the band saw, who said you cannot cut curves using a band saw, the blade is 7mm wide BTW and the wood is pine with the most delightful aroma, sorry that was my coffee!
No animals or insects were harmed in the execution of these parts, only my finger tips (thinks, I must remember to wear my reading glasses next time.)

Cleanup will be done using scrollsaw and belt and hand sanding.
On the back side of the pieces where they join I will recess the timber to half depth and place a filler piece in there.
Ohh man,did you leave plugged in the band saw while doing maintanance?Get well soon and let’s see your progress.Very slow at the moment, almost sliced my index finger off whilst doing maintenance on my bandsaw two days before Easter. I had no feeling in half of the finger until a few days ago. Will post some pictures of where I'm at soon.
