This is a present for my son’s high school soccer coach. It is a segmentation of of tiger which is the school mascot. The tiger is 3/4” soft maple, the grass is western red cedar, and the frame is red oak. The piece is approximately 22.5” x 14.5”.

Thanks to Neal Moore for the tiger pattern from Scroll Saw Workshop Issue 20 – Fall 2005, and to the idea of framing the project from his photo gallery. Also thanks to Patrick Spielman and Kerry Shirts for the pattern for the grass from their book Scroll Saw Art: Realistic Pictures in Wood
