This is similar to the last ornaments I posted. This one is made from entirely from pine. The dark wood was stained with a dark walnut stain. I was careful to make sure the grain lined up on both halves when making the ornament and am pleased how it ended up. I really like the way the grain flows as you can see in the third and fourth picture. The symbol is my family’s cattle brand.

Pretty cool Derek.
They look great.

Beautiful ornament! Those cut lines are very clear. Good job on those grain lines.
