A friend of mine saw the work I did on a moose and asked me if I could create a special project for her dad. He collects Victrolas and she said that he and his dog are inseperable. I came up with an idea. I took a single photo of the dog. and the old RCA Victor ad that featured “Niper”. I Photoshopped Niper out and replaced him with her dad’s dog, “PITA”. Since PITA was female, I change it from “His Master’s Voice” to “Her Master’s Voice.
The photo is somewhat decieving in that the Oak grain is not as pronounced as it appears in the photo. In hindsight I should have used Maple Plywood.
It measures 23” x 32” (About 3 weeks in my spare time.) No Staining. Cherry, Walnut, Hickery, Yellow Heart and Maple.
The lettering was done thrugh a special trick I came up with years ago. It is NOT burned into the wood.
This item is a ONE OF A KIND !
