*Celtic Symbolic wall plaque in Black Walnut and Curly Maple. Laminated together with tight bond 3.
Stands around 10 X 10 inch and 1-1/2 inch thick with a keyhole slot routered on the back and finished off first with a little Tung Oil then 3 coats of spray on Poly. Finding this a great way to learn a bit about useing chisels and find it quite calming. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by to check out my work Regards Barry.

Love this double heart design, Bazz! Did you scroll the inside then glue up and cut the outline? Thanks for sharing.

Yes Candy cut the inside first with the scrollsaw . Glue and clamped for 24 hours then cut the outside with my bandsaw.
There is also 2 hidden 6mm dowels to help with the glue up just to aid with holding it so it would not slide around clamping it together. Quite a Bold looking plaque.
So thanks Candy & Northwest29. BazzA.
