Default Woodcutter and guitar pieces

Early in the year I posted a request if anyone could make a pattern from a photo of my hubby out collecting wood. Well Kevin (Fremmed) kindly came forward within a day with a pattern for me. It seems so long ago but I did let Kevin know it would be on the back bences for a while. I didn't want to post any photos until after our guild competition as a few of our members are now searching this forum and I didn't want them to see my entry prior to competition. Well I must say I didn't get any placings but that doesn't matter one bit. I just enjoyed making something a bit original and it was always meant to be just a piece for my hubby.

The photos attached are
1.The original phioto
2. A trial piece cut to Kevin's pattern
3. The finished piece having been modified by me
4. Another piece I put into competition but also did not make the final. Unfortunately it couldn't be judged in the miniatures where I placed it as there was no competition so it was moved to the box section and there was a very nice turned box in the section which did deserve to win. This was a pattern by Steve Good which I reduced 50%. Thanks Steve! It was made from Kwila and Kaihikatea.

Kevin, your pattern looks really great cut. But then a few people realising that I wanted a stand alone picture, suggessted that some areas of it were not identifyable enough so I got to work with twink and a pencil and ended up with this result. Kevin you really did get me on the right track and I do say once again to you, thankyou! This piece was well admired by the members. The scrolling was cut from London Plane and the backing is Totara Burr. This burr is quite exceptional and Hubby had it earmarked for turning into pens for selling. Now he can just dream of those potential dollars each time he looks at it. LOL. I just say, tough luck, mate, you have some more out in the shed!!

Theresa you did a great job on Kevin's cutting, and your husband's wood gathering is so cool. I like how you embellished your little guitar....gives me an idea to update mine. Is that clef appliqued or inlayed? Nice touch.

Wow, Kevin made an outstanding pattern and you did it justice with your cutting. The judges must have had blinders on. Way to go. Thank You for sharing the photos.

Very nice Teresa. That is the second cutting of the guitar I have seen this evening. I am going to have to cut it.

They look beautiful Teresa.The burr was a perfect backer,and the guitar and case is one I would like to try also (tried to do a guitar segmantation right after I started scrolling.I keep the pieces in a coffee can just to remind me why I like fretwork so good-HeHe ). Thanks for posting the pics.

Oh, by the way, I'm not familar with the coin(nice touch), about what size is the guitar?

Thanks, Jerry C
