not cut the internal lines at this time. Remember, your saw is on a bevel!
Bring the saw table back to zero and square the table, using a combination square to make sure that your blade is perpendicular to the table. Thread a No. 2 reverse tooth blade through the blade entry hole in the waste area of the frame and cut along the dotted line in a clockwise direction. Turn the piece over and rout a 1/4" rabbet 1/8" deep into the back of the frame.
With the front of the piece facing up, thread a No. 2 reverse tooth blade through the frame opening and cut along the wavy solid black line. Next, using the same blade, cut the wavy line around the outer edge of the plaque.
Adding the details
Note: all remaining scroll saw work will be cut with the No. 2/0 reverse tooth blade.
Install the 3/16"-Dia. roundover bit (or another decorative bit of your choice) and rout along the outer and inner edges of the frame. The use of a small router or laminate trimmer is extremely helpful here.
Cut the internal lines of the rainbow trout. Note: you can skip this step if you are painting your fish. Cut the deepest detail lines such as the gills and the eye and mouth lines first.
Cut the background detail lines such as the sand, plants, and waves for the three sunfish by threading the blade through the blade entry holes you drilled for the waves or by going through the opening left from the trout piece.
Finally, cut the three sunfish and the back plate to shape. Note: if you are painting, only cut around the perimeter of each fish.
Lightly sand the individual pieces in the direction of the grain with a medium grit sandpaper. Follow up, once again in the direction of the grain, with fine grit sandpaper.
