Hi Everybody Just a simple G Clef made of rock maple, walnut stain on the side to make contrast, and a 3-d carving effect to give it some character. This was my first attempt at carving, mostly a cut out with the scroll saw, band saw, and a lot of work with the files and sandpaper. Had lots of fun making it, thanks for looking.

Great idea for those holiday gifts. It strikes a certain chord with me!

I don’t have a scroll saw so I need to think through how I would modify the design for bandsaw. Other musical notes and symbols come to mind, some with captions: take note; give it a rest; and measure twice, cut time.

This holiday season I also want to try my hand at inlay. This would be a good subject for my hand cut inlays.

Thanks for the idea and for inspiring some new ones, itsmic

Thanks guys for the nice comments, the encouragement really does make a difference to me, thank you
the dimensions are 14X about 4.5”. Moat all the g clefs I have seen have proportions about 3 to 1 height to width, that varies a bit, some are more stout than others, there is a site on line , shows how to draw one, I don’t have the right equipment to enlarge one, so I just drew it free hand with these steps and looking at a smaller one as a guide.
