How long would it take a decent carpenter to make this?

I saw this at a nearby store on the divider. We have a similar setup and was thinking of having a carpenter add that to ours as well. How long do you think it would take to make including staining?

This type scroll work is commonly called gingerbread. It is can be made with a jig saw. Portable or table type saw or can be ordered pre-made on line.
For someone with a good jig saw, this can be made quickly.

Altogether including finishing making one would take me about 5 hours. Making more of them the time each would be less. They are available to just buy at many places in wood and metal. You might try Van Dyke's Restorers.

Cool! Where would I find it pre-made online? How long do you estimate it would take to make with a jig saw if we decided to go the custom route?

As Steve suggested, here's a good place to start...
