This is a quote that my wife has always wanted me to make for her to hang in our daughter’s room. She also recently saw zebrawood and loved it, but a large project was not possible based on cost of zebrawood. I will say that this wood has a really strong odor – almost like a zebra go figure. I used BLO and wax on the frame. The quote was laser cut onto a 1/4 inch piece of birch, with colored construction paper taped behind to give the color for the elephants and the letters.

I got to try out a keyhole router bit on the back for hanging this frame on the wall. I like it, but next time will have to remember to drill a starter hole much larger than the keyhole bit, as I had to take the bit out of the router (in the router table) to get it out of the hole, due to sawdust crammed in there. Overall a fun project, working with a new type of wood, and of course happy wife makes for a happy project.

I wish I took more pictures during the project, but somehow I always forget!

Great looking frame. The grain coupled with the shape of the frame is excellent. Very appealing.
