I might get the boot for this one. But it is wood, and I did cut it out on my scroll saw. I had to cut it in three sections on the table saw so I could cut this out on my scroll saw. Then dowled it back together. This is going over a 5 ft closet at the cabin for trim. This was just a fun project to paint on a cold Spring weekend. Thanks for looking.
Our boat dock is coming along as planned. Should be in the water pretty soon. But once again, it’s not really a wood working project, only the deck will be wood. Not sure I’ll be able to post it on here.

Oh my gosh, that is so cool, Janice! I can’t quite see… is it the white part cut out and laid on a dark background, or is it two sets of cuts, and the dark pieced inset into the white board? Whatever you did, it sure worked well. Very attractive. Good job. And I, too, want to see the dock when it’s done.

You guys are great. Thanks for the kind words.
Barb. It’s just scrolled at the top and the rest is painted. Thought about doing what you mentioned, but just painted it instead. That’s why I didnt think this should be posted on here. I’m going to polyurethane this and the pine will turn alitlle yellow. I think that will look good against the paneling in the cabin. But then again, the more I look at it the more I don’t like it. Too busy for me. It might end up in a fire.
As far as the dock goes. The one that is still there is over 30 years old and it was added on to it over the years. Two sections are gone, lost in floods, because it was rotten. The last section that is left is so small and partially sunk, can hardly walk on it now. Can’t wait for this new one to go in the water. Hopefully this one will last 30 years too. It’s pretty scarry to be out there when we have head water pushing the dock. The only thing holding it is cables and ropes. I would love to use that IPE wood for the deck, but would hate to see that much money floating down the river. All it takes is one good flood. So we will probably use treated lumber. I will post pictures. Thanks friends.

That’s an awesome header. You’re a talented painter. I think any project involving wood is appropriate to post here. So share your dock pics when you’re ready.

That’s beautiful Janice we don’t have scenery like that here in East Yorkshire but it fires my imagination of the American landscape thanks for sharing. Oh! & I’m with David, don’t forget to post the dock I’m sure we’d all be interested to see it finished
