Bazz, it looks massive and great! Wonder if I could do that with a 2” thick hunk of silver maple…don’t think the scrollsaw would be the tool of choice for that! Thanks for sharing.

Beauty from what many would consider junk wood. I say embrace the imperfections. Doing so often makes the most interesting, and colorful pieces.

Nice work, thanks for posting it.

Thank you….I think the name PIPPY OAK refers to how the tree became diseased and the reaction is mass growth creating lots of ofshoots that dont really grow well creating a BURR . No doubt someone here more experienced will correct me.
I love all the figured timbers nature at its best.

Bazz – I like lettering in wood, especially interesting, figured wood.
If the wood is not interesting, you have to add your own embellishments:

This was a name sign for square dance “caller” – Don’t know what you would call him in Liverpool.
