Tiger Portrait

Just finished this tiger for my son. His high school mascot is the tiger.

The method is called segmentation. I am doing some segmented pieces to hone my scroll saw skills.

The plan comes from Neal Moore’s book “Animal Portraits in Wood.” The tiger is 12.5” x 9.75” and is made from soft maple. I used golden oak, dark walnut, colonial maple, and black dye to color the tiger. The pieces are held together with craft clue and hot glue and then attached to 1/8” backer board.

Really very nice work. I collect tigers. When I consider buy a new one for my collection I am very particular, had I seen your tiger in a shop I would not have had to think very long about it as I really like the look.
Great job~!
