    Hi

    I think this is made of wood. If it is then it is called as wood craft or wood crafting. A thin piece of wood is used in this sort of craft. & thin craft saw is used to carve the wood. Not a difficult task. But should be done with quite care.

      I've heard it called fretwork, scrollwork, fretsaw work, jigsaw work or scrollsaw work. You should be able to find patterns and designs for it by searching on those terms - I'm sure there are a lot of them out there.

      If you need some items made this way, John from The Jigsaw Workshop (do say hello from me if you contact him!) at www.thejigsawworkshop.co.uk should be able to help you - I've seen him do that sort of thing at lightning speed!

                it is mainly called scroll sawing as most people use a scroll saw instead of the old fret saw, although I still hand saw some items if there is only a little piece to cut out . In some older books it is refered to as pierced work. There are plenty of books around for scroll saw patterns as well as some web sites with patterns for sale and some freebies.

                    Yep, everyone has nailed it. It is called fretwork, or scroll work. There are lots of templates you can get, I even have some books somewhere. I do have a scroll saw in my workshop, they are quite easy to use, once you get the hang of it. I don't do commercial work on it though.

                    You can get custom shapes cut, Scorch's recommendation sounds great. If you need lots of them cut you may want to look into laser or CNC router cut shapes. There are loads of suppliers on the net and the detail of the cutting is amazing, if that's what your design calls for.
