Hello everyone it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. This was done for a friend for Christmas. She asked me to make something for her grandchildren and they like the Jayhawks. So this is what I came up with. Toot my own horn here I thought it turned out good. The Jayhawk is made of 2 pieces of Baltic Birch and one is sectioned off. Then I painted the sections the colors. Glued the sections to the backer. The Rock Chalk is made of 1/2” oak and Jayhawk is made of 3/8” Walnut.

I really enjoyed doing this project. I had alot of fun.

Thanks for looking. Glad to be back.

Very cool! I wish I could draw like that. I can make, fix, or build anything. But I don’t have any artistic talent like that.
Great job!

Well done! The paint job is outstanding. I may have to use this idea to make some fun projects for my Grandkids in College.
