Carved from a nice slab of Mozambique POD Mahogany.
one inch thick and carved with a mix of Chisels- Scrollsaw and Dremel tools.
Stands at 15 inch Tall and 12 inch wide with edges trimmed and shaped
with my palm router. Also on the back I have cut a router keyhole slot for simple wall hanging.
Soaked in my Vat of Tung oil for 30 minutes then Lemon Oil for 15 minutes.
This is the first of 3 panels to complete the project that will all hang together next to each other
to create an image of looking out through windows into the forest .
First attempt at this kind of thing, quite a learning curve. But inspired by others here with a life time of experience.
Good Luck To You All For 2017
Regards Bazza WINDSOR ENGLAND.

Sorry just noticed the photo quality is quite poor I had not cleaned my Camera lens WHOOPS !

Wow MyHogany Some Quote Cheers… First time challenge doing this sort of work but it has inspired me to be more creative in the future. Took 3 hours to make but 3 weeks thinking about it first… Good Luck for 2017.
Regards from Barry.
