This work was done for a number of reasons.

First, I love the Beatles and this image is an icon – it just HAD to be done! ;-)
Second, I wanted to give a gift to a recent customer who just went through some trying times.
Third, I also wanted to do this image for a friend of mine who also loves the Fab Four.

So, this naturally called for – Stack Cutting!

The wood I chose for this is Rainbow Poplar – I think the funky colors suit this image well.

Piece measures around 5×11 and is 3/16 of an inch thick.

I was a tad hesitant of doing all three pieces in a single stack, but I used a brand new #3 blade and it went very smoothly with little to no “fuzzies” on the back. I used Steve Good’s method of only using packing tape on all four sides – no tape in between layers at all – worked very well and had an easy time removing the tape when finished as a bonus!

Finish was a soak in lemon oil and backed with thick felt.

It’s very well done, when someone can look at a picture in wood and know exactly what it is.
It’s a very iconic picture.
I like that you didn’t write Beatles on it or anything else.
There’s no need.
As always, great job!
