Just under the wire
Finally finished my last commissioned piece this morning ....it has been a busy Christmas !
Thanx to people like Toni and Sue, Gill, Carl ( canadianscroller) , Kevin ( jediscroller ) and others I am constantly inspired, encouraged and challenged to think out of the box
Such was the case with this pattern. The very nature of the pattern called for an " open " background but I decided to experiment & do it as an inlay instead. It's a lot of holes for an experiment but I just had to try
8 x 10 1/8 maple ply into 1/8 cherry ply, BLO , cut with a #1 FD spiral
Thanx for lookin'

Looking good there. The inlay fits well with the piece. Just what it needed; a separate wood for background, without the edge of laying one on top of the other.

Brilliant. A man after my own heart. I like combining different styles of cutting.
I have seen photos of a lot of portraits, and that one rates right up there with the best. No mistaken who the inspiration was.
