Night Run!

Made from a modified pattern by Lora Irish. Plywood that is 1/2 inch and acrylic that is 5/16th inch. The completed size is about 7 by 12 inches.

The acrylic was lying around the shop and quite nasty looking; so, I lightly sanded it to get the night look.

The template in the 2nd picture was cut at the same time. The next time I make some, I will use lighter plywood and stack cut.

To make the template, I just taped the plastic to the wood. Then I glued the pattern to the plastic and drilled and cut.

The base is just a small piece of fence cedar.

Youngest grand-daughter really likes horses, so this was actually just for her and the heck of it both!

I expect that you will have one really happy grand-daughter, and her first decision will be to find the “best” place to display your art. Well done.
