Good morning to all. Thank you for looking and for all the kind remarks. Connor loved it, and it is hanging in his room already... he and his little brother are now BIG FANS of THE BAMBINO.
Herb, if I understand your question correctly, you may think that this was cut with the Circuit machine. This is a hand cut fret work cut on an EX 21 roll saw, I used 1/8 inch Baltic Birch plywood because it is so stable, but if you look closely you will see some areas that were nail biters. I proceded with extreme caution on those areas and I also presanded the panel to 320 grit so I wouldn't have to deal with the weak areas after the cut was complete. I wrapped the panel on the front and abck with 2 inch blue painters tape and then used 3M 77 spray glue to attach the pattern to the taped panel. When the cutting was completed, I soaked the panel in WATCO Danish Oil, then let it dry for 48 hours, after that, I used a spray can of lacquer for a finish, the frieze was glued on prior to the lacquer application. I made a frame useing some poplar I had and painted it white with the intention of painting the classic Yankee Pinstipes on it, I asked Ann Marie to cut out the names for me and when she found this patriotic baseball, we thought it looked goog on the frame.
To answer your question, Ann Marie dosen't think the Cricut is capable of cutting wood, she uses it for fabric, paper and vinyl, and to be honest we are not aware of any body useing it for wood.
I am sorry for the length of this reply, and I hope that I was able to answer your question, please let me know if you would like any further explanation.
