What you need:
  3"x3"x1/4" thick piece of wood (preferably not plywood)

Step 1: Cutting and Sanding

Tape your design to the piece of wood and cut it out on your scroll saw.  Cut the T into sections as shown above.  Sand thoroughly with the grain.

Step 2: Staining

Open up your wood finish and mix thorougly with a paint stick. Next, wipe all the sawdust off of your piece of wood with a damp cloth and apply the stain evenly with your foam brush as soon as the wood is dry.  Finally, dab off the extra stain and let dry. 

Step 3: Cleanup

This is the most important step of all! Put away everything after you are done! If you did this before you read the step, CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is a sign of a good woodworker. Pat yourself on the back and go buy yourself some chocolate!!
