Default Largemouth Bass

Been poking away at this for a while and finally finished up today.

Cutting is 1/2 inch Oak and the frame is a mix of White Pine and Oak.

This is the second Mike Williams pattern that I've done and I really enjoyed doing both of them - have plans to do several more.

Thanks,


Jay

That's some nice cutting there, Jay. It is rustically beautiful!

Oh my, you have a super bunch of detail in that one. Wow great job on it.
That one had to be a really time consumer in cutting and going slow. Can see the hard work you put in it.

Nice job Jay. I also have the pattern but haven't started it yet. But this has inspired me to get busy.

I've always enjoyed your framing. Cutting is quite good. If I may offer some constructive critizism, I've always prefered using wood with less busy grain for very detailed cuttings. Overall very nice.

Thanks folks - and thanks to mol1jb for the suggestions. Yes - it is a busy cutting - busy enough for some to find it a bit difficult to pick out the fish when looking at it closely. If I were to do this pattern again I think I might do a bit of experimenting with some subtle colouring (maybe some translucent dye?), or perhaps some shading with a woodburner, to give the bass a bit more definition.

This kind of frame has been well received so seems to be becoming the "go-to" frame for my larger outdoor pieces - this area is a genuine "huntin', fishin', paddlin'" chunk of the world and the icons fit very naturally with the environment and activities this area is famous for. I do like making this frame but it is just about as much work as the cutting .....

Thanks again,


Jay
