This was a commissioned piece, referenced from a photo. 8×10 plaque from 3/4” select grade pine. I use a detail master adjustable temp burner. This was all done with a medium rounded skew.

Hey! Great job here! When I saw this I immediately thought that I was looking at my great grandmother and grandfather from my mother’s side…Last name of Brown. Does that ring a bell? If not, I guess I found their twins. HA!
