This was made as a gift for my wife’s brother’s family with their last initial. Initially I wasn’t thinking of doing a backing and got a bunch of dowels to join the pieces of wood together. I abandoned that idea partially due to complexity and partially because I thought having a background would make it look a bit more finished.

The construction was pretty simple, biscuit jointed background and applewood sections from the backyard. There was a lot of sanding not included in here, trying to avoid boredom producing video, with the applewood sections.

If you haven’t ever tried hot glue and wood together it can be incredibly strong and fast setting. My wife and daughter got the final hot glue and arrangement for the W completed and it was done just in time for christmas.
