Default Fretwork Rose

This month's Magazine had something special for me. Page 61 has a fretwork rose pattern that arrived in the mail almost to the day that I needed it. My aunt just passed away and she loved roses. So I cut this for the family.

I used one of the 3/4" red cedar boards that I was gifted this week, I had to reduce the pattern size to fit the 4 1/2" board width which made the fret even more touchy to cut. Just a note, if you are going to cut this pattern and you dont want to use a back board to mount it on, use a strong dense wood. The red cedar bends like a willow and I was scared to death trying to get it out of the wood that I would snap something off.

The rose is 3/4" red cedar the back is 1/4" walnut.

The first picture is of it before I put a finish on it. I will add a finished picture with better lighting when the project is done.

As always, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Walter, great job on cutting the Rose, good choice of wood as the red color makes the rose really stand out.

That is remarkable. Pairing the walnut and red cedar was a good choice.

I like your choice of wood. The red rose goes well with the walnut. Really is beautiful. They will love it. It's always a good feeling to give. Thanks

I finished it this evening and took a couple quick pictures of it before I gave it to my uncle.

My apologies for the quality of the pictures. I hope to get better ones made soon.

I know I will be making this pattern again some time.

My heart felt thanks to Gloria Cosgrove for this beautiful pattern. It is from this month's issue of SW&C page 61.

I agree with the others, a very nice combination of wood colors. You did a beautiful job with it. It is always something special when the project has personal meaning!
