When I saw this graphic, I HAD to do a cutting of it – I mean just LOOK at it!

For those of you who do not get it, in the 1980’s and 1990’s the World Wrestling Federation used the initials WWF – then along came the World Wildlife Fund and also laid claim to the same WWF initials.

Well, the Pandas won the battle royal and the Wrestling Federation is now the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).

ANYWAY…......... I think this play on words image is hilarious in a strange twisted sort of way – just my style!

Since the image is so basic, I looked around for a killer piece of wood – a live edged choke cherry branch that I split and ripped by hand over three years ago. REALLY nice grain!

Work measures around 7.5×3 inches.

As usual, a soak in lemon oil and backed by thick felt.

Too cute!

A very nice, & unique cut out. It had me fooled at my first look at it.

I thought it was just painted on the board.

I also like your choice of wood species. It’s one you never see, that’s what makes it unique.

Dick & Barb,

I get the “It looks painted / It looks like it’s screen printed” comments quite a bit – THANKS!

I think it’s due to the shiny finish of the lemon oil and the totally matte finish of the felt I use. It does create an illusion that the black is standing proud of the wood surface. Anyway, thanks to you ALL for the compliments!

The straight on image looks painted, but the oblique picture tells what it really is.
