Charles Dearing & Mike Williams
A while since I have been on. Life has been busy. I have finished 2 works with another almost done.
First up is Charles Dearing pattern of ducks landing. Cut out of 1/8 in baltic birch ply stacked 4x. Framed with a self made walnut frame. Total work time on this is around 9 hours.
Next is Mike William's Buck pattern. Originally this pattern is like 600 some holes. I modified it a bit by cutting off an inch of grass from the bottom of the pattern and that saved me around 150ish holes. Also modified the eye just a bit. Cut out of 1/8 baltic birch ply stacked 4x. Framed with a self made maple frame. Total work time on this one is around 14 hours.

Both came out great Jacob. The frames are a fantastic compliment to your work. Both Mike and Charles are outstanding pattern designers. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Those are two very very nice pieces.
The frames finish out the pieces simply and elegantly.
