This is a commisioned piece – when the customer asked “could you do a Star Wars Cutting?”, I immediately thought of Master Yoda as I wanted to try this one for a Looooooong time!
Time to break out the scrollsaw again!
Then I wondered, can I do this? Should I try? Then a little voice out of nowhere…............
“No! Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Yes, Master Yoda, I will do! :-)
Cutting is 1/8” thick “Rainbow” Poplar, which I think mimics his muddy home on Dagobah right nicely!
“Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is.”
Sorry Master Yoda – I think your home is wonderful!
Measures 5 1/2×9 inches. Finished with a quick dip in lemon oil and backed with felt.
I hope he looks good, well as good as Yoda can look…......
