The first one is easy. You would use a plunge router and straight bit. You'd need to use a guide to keep each slot straight. Probably one that would be able to index off the previous slot.

The second one looks a lot harder. I'm thinking scroll saw? I think the holes are too close together to use a pattern and a router. Maybe if you use two patterns?

Of course, you could also just have a CNC router do it all. But I'm thinking of normal tools.

Sanchez has given you the best way too cut the slots.

As for the pattern, since I have one, I would use the scroll saw. The proper method is to print out a pattern (or draw one if you have the talent) and use a spray non permanent glue (artist store sell them) and temporarily stick the pattern onto the wood. This can also be done with a jig saw but is more difficult to get smooth cuts.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

A CNC machine would likely be used to mass produce either of them.

Both can be done with a router and templates, size of original will determine if more than one template is needed, particularly with the second example.

It is hard to tell on second example but I believe the design is engraved, not cut all the way through as you would get with a scroll saw.

Good eye Frank - you're right, but a scroll saw can still be used if that the tool ddavid has. Cut out the pattern and glue on a piece of luan board after staining it (or painting if that's what you prefer. If you have a router and are comfortable using it, then by all means do what has been suggested.

That is the fascinating thing about this hobby, there is always an alternative method to fit your tools on hand.

I'm thinking that they are actual holes, since the linked websites are for audio. :)
