This was a mother’s day gift that I made this year. It features a walnut frame, birds eye maple veneer on plywood background, and a padauk cardinal. Finish was clear spray shellac.
I used my Stanley #55 and #45 to make the molding and rabbet for the frame. I hammer veneered the birds eye veneer to 1/8” plywood and glued it into the frame. I used a slightly modified template from Sheila Landry’s Cardinal Napkin Holder & Plaque, mostly just scaled down in size a little. The whole thing, frame included, is about 3.5”x5.5”.
