150 yr old carved fretwork

We are newbies to this forum. We need to restore 14 of these 150 yr old frames, many of which have broken/missing fretwork pieces. They are individual pieces then glued together. The one pictured is the only complete one. They are about 30" x 36". Wondering if a duplicator would be good for this? If not, how should we attack this project? The spindles we will do on our lathe. Or...does anyone know of someone capable and willing to make these for us? Thanks for your help and advice

Some of you guys that are woodcarvers, you might PM prunellatiz and bid on making the fretwork and mailing it to them. These are for a their church.

Thank you Steve. Should have mentioned the frames are made from maple. Thanks again.
