This was a very interesting project I made for a customer. The baseball player and background, I copied from a tee shirt. Which is one of their logos. Farwell, Nebraska is a very small town somewhere in the middle of Nebraska. And baseball was a very big part of their lives, going back a hundred years. You my find it very interesting to look at their web page to find out a little bit of their history.

The size of the out side frame is 12 3/4” x 15 1/4” x 3/4”

The frame is made out of African Mahogany.

The Marquetry has Ash, Holly, Bloodwood, Poplar, Quilted Maple, Flat Cut Maple, Black Ebony, Chessnut Burl, Beech, & Walnut Burl.

Thanks for looking, Lumberjocks!
