Default Celtic Tree of Life

This is done from art by Jen Delyth who owns the copyright. I talked to her awhile back for her permission. When I finished it I sent her a copy to show her how it came out. She really liked it and is going to put it on a customer inspiration page on her web site, Celtic Arts Studio. I will use a clear poly. to finish it. It's walnut and oak.

That's not only a pretty nice piece but the cutting is over the top! That is some fine and intricate scrolling! Most impressive.

Can you tell us how thick is the wood? How are you mounting the interior to the exterior? What size blade did you use?

Very cool piece. And I agree with John, your cutting looks superb. I have always been attracted to Celtic art. I'll have to check out Jen Delyth's web site. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, she has some incredible art, her site is celticartstudio.com. It took about 5-6 hours start to finish.

That is a superlative example of fine precision scrolling!
Fantastic work on a great design!
