Hey Everyone

I’ve had this one half finished for a few months, finally devoted some time to it. It took about 8hrs. to cut, 322 holes. Each one is 1/8” BB Ply with 4 different veneers Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, and Quited Maple. I like the Maple best, what do YOU think.
Thanks for lookin.

Andrew

These all look great!! but my 2 favorites are the walnut for the depth of the black areas and on the Maple the wolf really stands out .
Great Job!

Very nice work. You have a lot of little delicate tabs there to break off. How are you holding the center of the pack together so you don’t get vibration and seperation between layers as you saw? What size and style of blade do you favor?

Thanks for the great comments everyone i really appreciate it.
Although the BB Ply has good contrast it is somewhat bland, i find most non woodworkers need to see some colour and grain to realize its wood.

Terry – my personal method is to apply dabs of hot melt glue to the edges,then i use a pin nailer and shoot 23 gauge 1/2” pins in the waste areas. I also leave some of the larger waste pieces in place to add some stability while cutting. On this project i used an FD(Flying Dutchman)#1 Spiral.

Thanks

GREAT JOB! I have done several of these types of portraits in baltic birch ply but have not tried any veneer. I may have to give that a try. I have not been finishing my pictures as I frame them behind glass. Do you frame your finsished products and do you put them behind glass?

Hey John

Thanks for the comments, I dip them in BLO then apply 2 coats of spray lacquer, double mat and frame all my work under glass.

Thanks Jim, Yes i do sell them, this one goes for $300. Stack cutting 4 at a time is the only way to make any kind of profit. I find presenting this kind of work adds value to the simpler items.
