Default Newest Project

Hey all,

Here is my latest project. The pattern was a pain to find. I knew I had seen this in an older issue of Creative Woodworks, and after finally going thru all my issues I found it. June 2005. Then when I opened up the pattern inserts, I only had one of them. And not the right one! After my disgust in that, I thought about ordering the back issue again. I then started to organize all the magazines, and I got so lucky to find it in the pile!!

Its cut for my wife's uncle, the guy that gave me a truck load of walnut. Its 24" long and about 13" wide. Its around 7/8" thick. It was a fun cutting out the little trees, and grass in this thick of wood! I used a danish oil finish on it and am thinking about using some Deft to give it a shine.

Let me know how you like it!

He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.

Excellent cutting and a wonderful use of a piece of walnut with bark. Thanks for sharing.
