PET MEMORIAL ” HARRY BEAR” IN BLACK WALNUT AND ZEBRANO LETTERING -CELTIC CROSS-
I had a request to make another Pet Memorial for a friends Terrier Dog with paw prints a heart and his name.
So here it is based on a Celtic Cross which is a very common sight in Grave yards here in the UK.
I made up a design and cut it out on my scroll saw , and stands at 20 inch tall and the upper part is 10 inch across and around an inch thick.
I decided to scroll the lettering out of Zebrano to contrast with the Walnut to make the name really stand out.
I have trimmed all the edges back and front with my palm router to add to its depth and highlight the overall shape.
The Memorial Plaque has also had a good soak in Tung oil to help protect it from our poor climate.
The last photo is just a very common Celtic Head stone to give you an idea as to where some of my inspiration comes from with all mt Celtic Work.
Sorry not been on LJs much this last 2 months I have been quite busy with projects for December along with trying my hand at a new skill of Stained Glass, which I hope to incorporate with my wood craft.
Thanks for checking out my project Regards Barry —- Windsor England..
