This is a commissioned piece, and it still pained me to ruin such wonderful cherry with such a horrible logo.
Even though I despise the Steelers, I do try to do my absolute best on all my scrollwork – I think this turned out pretty nice.
A few years ago I saw a fellow LJ’er use this font on a box I believe and was able to get a copy of it – it was the perfect match for this cutting. The only thing that gets cut is the shading on the font – really interesting cutting!
Overall, the piece is solid cherry with a live top edge. It roughly measures 10×13 and is around 1/4” thick.
I soaked the piece in lemon oil and then wiped a thin coat of a darkened danish oil over the face to pull out the grain in the wood a bit better. Backing is thick felt.
GO RAVENS!!!!!! There, I feel a bit better now…...............
