Default Ned Done.

G'day all,
Here are the finished Ned Kelly Plaques.
JigSue and Ersell Kindly converted my arrangement into a pattern.
Thank you, big time to both. I used Sue's pattern, replacing her helmet with Ersell's.

Hope I did them both justice.

One was a custom order and like always, if I think it's a goer, I'll cut 2. Well I was just fitting the Frames on Saturday and my Auntie came down the shed, saw them and bought the other.
So No Neds Left.

Hi John, why does that name ring a bell? Those frames sure suit the cutting to make a stunning piece.

Hey John,

Do you remember me???? JK, Nice cutting job, I love those frames, is that your own design??? Did you harvest the timbers or make them out of store bought wood??

It's been really nice talking with you. We should do it more often, lol.


Glue it back on, they'll never notice.

Good excuse to cut a couple more mate! Looks like its about a 100 frets or so...Kinda fun when you get down to the last few, huh? Looks sharp as a tack mate, and Sue and Ersell did great patterns for it.

The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory....

I just googled Ned Kelly. You did A remarkable job of his likeness. I think I was looking at the same picture the pattern was made from. And I love the frames

They both look real good John. I can see why the extra one went so fast. That style frame is a nice touch too.

Well done John, and like the others I loved the frames. They are rustic to suit Ned Kelly, but refined enough for the living room wall.
