Another roar, to go with the Lion Roar I did in April. This is Leopard Roar, a Charles Dearing pattern. Done in 1/2” Maple. Thanks for looking.

My goodness gracious. Just the thought of cutting out those whiskers makes me twitchy. I could never attempt this. Very well done.

HA! A shot of Seagram’s VO before you start fixes the “twitchy” business….

Thanks to you all for your nice comments..

Nice job Paul, a little Windsor is what helps my twitch problems. Do you make your own scroll wood or buy them ? Which do you prefer ply or solid wood? Mike

Mike I buy my Cherry and Maple off E-bay in 12”- 13” X 4” pieces. Then I glue to the width I need. There are a couple sellers I have been real happy with (if interested send me a message and I will tell you the ones I have dealt with). I like both Baltic Birch and solid wood. It is more what mood I am in than anything else. Lately is has been a solid wood mood…..:)

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Wow. That is awesome. Just when I begin to think that I am developing patience, I see something like this and realize I am not patient at all. Thank you for sharing.
